New video from Moby
July 18, 2013, 3:42 pm
For a solo artist Moby has always worked inclusively. His new album, Innocents reflects this with the extensive cast of collaborators along with the emotional nature of the record and now through his new video for “A Case For Shame.”
“A Case For Shame” showcases Moby’s collaboration with fellow Mute artist Cold Specks and we invite you to watch the video.
The video is a directorial debut from Moby and was shot by Moby at his home in Los Angeles. It features the masked characters from the album cover, Cold Specks and Moby himself under water.
“’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
Moby is one of the most individual forces in electronic and popular music today. He has sold over 20 million albums and is back with arguably one of the best albums of his career, Innocents. Moby chose to make this record with a stellar cast.
For the first time in his career he worked with an outside producer, friend Mark 'Spike' Stent, whose résumé includes Madonna, U2, Muse, Björk, and Massive Attack. The list of eminent collaborators on Innocents includes Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips), alt-rock legend Mark Lanegan, Cold Specks, Skylar Grey, indie-folk singerDamien Jurado, and Inyang Bassey who was the vocalist on “The Right Thing” from Destroyed.
The entire concert tour for Innocents will consist of three shows in Los Angeles.
