The Private Press

The Private Press is the second full-length studio album by DJ Shadow, released on June 2, 2002 on MCA. Although not as critically acclaimed as his 1996 debut breakthrough Endtroducing..., The Private Press received generally favorable reviews.


The single "Six Days" featured a promotional video directed by Wong Kar-wai. "Blood On The Motorway" was featured in a TV commercial for the British mobile phone network O2.

The Limited Edition version of The Private Press has different packaging, and includes "Giving Up The Ghost (original version)" and a bonus disc featuring "Pushin' Buttons Live" (a 12-minute live track featuring Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark).

The album was given a Parental Advisory, because the tracks "Walkie Talkie" and "Mashin' on the Motorway" contain several uses of profanity. An edited version also exists with the profane moments re-edited.

The Private Repress was released in 2003, consisting of remixed tracks and b-sides from the recording era.

The song "Blood on the Motorway" was featured in the ending scene of the film "Dot The I."
