Moby has unveiled a stunning new video for “This Wild Darkness” – the latest track taken from his forthcoming album, Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt, out March 2 on Mute. Speaking to the urgent beauty of “This Wild Darkness,” Moby says, “'the world is a baffling place, full of confusion and darkness. ‘This Wild Darkness’ is essentially an existential dialog between me and the gospel choir – me talking about my confusion, the choir answering with longing and hope.”
The first place fans can hear new Moby music is via a playlist that he has curated of artists that influenced the recording of the album. Listen and subscribe here to the playlist, on Spotify and YouTube.
