The song is called “Rocket Fuel” and it features an appearance from legendary hip-hop group De La Soul.

Speaking about the song, in a statement, DJ Shadow said:

I usually try to avoid hyperbole, and I’m not super-comfortable hyping up my own stuff, but things are about to get pretty exciting. My heroes De La Soul were kind enough to join me on the debut single, “Rocket Fuel,” and the collab encapsulates so much of what I love about hip-hop…energy, beats, and fun.
