Moby has this morning unveiled the video for his brand new single 'The Day' (out 9th May). Featuring Heather Graham, it's the first single from his forthcoming new album Destroyed, which is released on the 16th May via his own label Little Idiot. Watch it here:
Moby says about the video: “‘The Day’ was written in a hotel room in Spain at dawn when I hadn’t slept...I wrote it on an acoustic guitar and recorded it on my phone, brought it home and re-recorded it with the old broken-down electronics I have in my studio.”
A deeply personal song about late night desperation and dark-night-of-the-soul disquietude, the video for 'The Day' (directed by Evan Bernard) features Moby’s friend and actress Heather Graham in the role of a nurse/guardian angel “who gets to slaughter demons," explains Moby. "I had this simple idea of Heather as an angel in a hospital. Evan expanded upon it and made it a lot more interesting, a lot more compelling.”
The basic plot of the video, according to Heather, is "a woman is lying in a hospital bed and I am the nurse and I give her some oxygen. Then it cuts to me as the angel flying, and then you see this scary demon.” The director elaborates: "She (the angel) is the defender of righteousness. She represents good, and she's defeating evil.”
Moby’s next UK live show will be on 2nd June at The Roundhouse in Camden, London. Tickets are available at http://www.moby.com/live.
Moby will also be exhibiting the full collection of his photographs from Destroyed The Book (out May 16th), at Proud Galleries in Camden from 18th May – 19th June.
