It’s barely been six months since Moby released More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse, the second album with his Moby & The Void Pacific Choir project, but the producer/DJ has already announced a new LP to be released next March.
The album’s title, Everything Was Beautiful, and Nothing Hurt, is a nod to Kurt Vonnegut’s World War II science fiction epic Slaughterhouse Five, and according to an interview with Billboard, the music will feature Moby returning to his trip-hop, gospel roots.
“It goes back to the humanity of it,” Moby said of his decision to keep politics out of the album. “Because that’s the common denominator: who are we as a species and why have we made so many egregious, terrible choices? The punk rocker in me wants to yell at us as a species and say, ‘Stop making these terrible choices,’ but the other part of me who’s maybe aspiring to some enlightenment just wants to try and be understanding and compassionate.”
The album’s lead single,”Like a Motherless Child,” features LA-based vocalist RaquelRodriguez, and a video for the song was also released Monday. See and pre-order it, along with the full track-listing for Everything Was Beautiful, and Nothing Hurt, below.
