Over one month after the release of the visual for “Urgent, Important, Please Read,” DJ Shadow is unveiling another new music video in support of one of his latest project’s singles. Specifically, the veteran producer-DJ is introducing a vignette for Our Pathetic Age‘s De La Soul collaboration “Rocket Fuel.” For the aforementioned video, Shadow enlists previous visual collaborator Sam Pilling; together, they use their latest collaborative piece to “reimagine” the moon landing, using a conspiracy theory as their guide.

“More than anything, I try to get a sense of the mood of society as a whole. The subtle signals that humans send each other, the way people behave, their frustrations and ebbs and flows. In my part of the world, people are scared. There’s rampant homelessness, and a real fear of falling into generational poverty. People are addicted to, and addled by distraction; they’re angry and confused, and disaffected by their own governmental institutions,” DJ Shadow shared in an official press statement on Our Pathetic Age. “There’s songs that are inspired by this energy and seek to harness it, to make sense of it. In some cases, there’s attempts to salve the wound; in others, the songs merely observe but don’t offer solutions. Despite the title, it’s a hopeful, vibrant album…there is always light in darkness. I want it to reflect the times we live in, a signpost in the ground to mark the era…Our Pathetic Age.”
