DJ Shadow: Artifact (w/Zack de la Rocha vocals)

The fine folks at never let me down. This time – via Twitter – they introduce us to a vocal/rough version of Artifact, a track off DJ Shadow’s 2006 LP The Outsider, an album that was unfortunately met lukewarm praise at best.

Zack de la Rocha’s highly charged political screeds were meant for this punk-rock-sounding instrumental, which makes you think Shadow concocted the tune in the first place with the former Rage Against the Machine singer’s vocals in mind. Not sure why it didn’t make the album, but glad this version found the light of day.
