De La Rocha’s Shadow
As well as Shadow, Zack’s also been working with Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor, who has been lending a hand to a few tracks. Of Zack’s new output, Shadow had this to say, “I’m finishing up a few songs for Zack De La Rocha, who is working on his album. I’m producing a few songs. I started doing demos for him a few years ago when I had time and we’ve settled on a few. I want to get those mixed up and his vocals settled down. I think somehow back home and in England somehow they got the impression I was embarrassed to be working with all these high profile names. That wasn’t the case at all. It was a great challenge. “It is hardcore. It is pretty hard. I would personally like to think that a lot of my music is quite hard-edged too even if it’s not sonically kind of rocky. A lot of what I have done in the past, maybe certain moments on ‘Endtroducing’ or certain moments on other records is hard core. I like hard edged music and he just brings that kind of intensity to any song we do.”
De La Roche’s solo album is now looking at a late ’03 release.
