Electronic music legend Moby is back with a completely gorgeous new single, “A Case For Shame,” the first taste of his upcoming eleventh studio album Innocents (pre-order on iTunes) due out on October 1st! The track features his fellow Mute artist Cold Specks (the pseudonym of Al Spx, a Canadian singer-songwriter based in London), who has such a haunting voice, I had a case of goosebumps while listening to this track. I’ve been a fan of Moby for years now (he’s 47 if you can believe it), and I have a feeling his new album (for the first time in his career he enlisted the help of an outside producer, his pal Mark ‘Spike’ Stent) could be one of his strongest releases yet, I definitely can’t wait to hear more. He’s also planning three concerts here in Los Angeles, I for sure need to be at one of those shows, he’s amazing live! Don’t miss the just released music video above, which Moby directed at his LA home.
“’A Case For Shame’ is the first video I’ve shot and directed for one of my songs, as in addition to directing I was also the camera person. The video narrative is as follows: I’ve drowned, and I’ve gone to an after-life inhabited by people who are concealing themselves because of shame. The masks are not meant to be conventionally frightening, the masks and sheets are being worn because the after-life people are hiding, because they’re ashamed.” – Moby
