Interview and more celebrating new book and release, Destroyed.
 

Moby’s only scheduled performance in the U.S. will be Thursday, May 12th at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City at 7:00 p.m. The evening includes an interview hosted by John Schaefer, host of WNYC’s Soundcheck and New Sounds, as well as a preview of songs from the new release due May 17th, Destroyed. There will be a screening of Moby’s self-directed/produced Be the One EP videos and copies of his new book of photography available, also called Destroyed. Tickets, which include Museum admission, are $10 ($6 for members). Seating is limited; advance purchase recommended through BrownPaperTickets.com.

A video for one of the new songs, “The Day”, was recently posted on YouTube. Directed by Evan Bernard and eyeball, the eerie hospital scene features Heather Graham, Moby’s friend and new neighbor in Los Angeles. Graham is seen as a nurse and then an angel conquering demons in a metaphysical battle of good vs. evil. It’s one of the few tracks from Destroyed that Moby actually sings on, with a sweeping chorus inspired by David Bowie and Brian Eno’s production of Low and Heroes.
