Moby Releases New Song ‘Are You Lost in the World Like Me?,’ Announces New ‘These Systems Are Failing’ LP
Moby fans are getting a new album — and it's just a few weeks away.
The veteran artist has announced These Systems Are Failing, the debut offering from his new project Moby and the Void Pacific Choir, with a release date of Oct. 14 on CD and digital. The album, currently available for pre-order on those formats, is set to be followed by a vinyl version on Nov. 18.
Moby's album announcement is coupled with the release of a single, "Are You Lost Like Me?," which you can check out via the above video embed.
"The music on the record is — the only way I can describe it, it's like new wave dance music," Moby told Al Jazeera last year. "It's sort of New Order inspired, a little Depeche Mode inspired. But quite electronic, very song-oriented. I have no idea if it's good."
These Systems Are Failing follows the release of Moby's memoir, Porcelain, which saw publication in May. The title, drawn from a track on his mainstream breakthrough record Play, was chosen for a number of different reasons.
"Porcelain is fragile and white, and I am fragile and white," Moby told NPR. "And also, halfway through the book, I go from being a sober Christian to being a very un-sober, non-Christian. And when I relapsed, to be graphic, I did a lot of throwing up into porcelain things."
