Moby announces the release of a new single, “The Day”, taken from his upcoming new studio album, Destroyed being released May 17th. Available now from all digital service providers, “The Day” is followed by the full remix bundle on May 10th, which includes the original album track and remixes from Lifelike, Basto, Gesaffelstein, Eddie Thoneick and Funkerman.
“The Day” was written in a hotel room in Spain at dawn when I hadn’t slept. It was a beautiful hotel room, a beautiful perfect hotel room and it was six or seven in the morning. I wrote it on a acoustic guitar and recorded it on my phone, brought it home and re-recorded it with old broken down electronics that I have in my studio”. – Moby
“The Day” was indirectly inspired by David Bowie and Brian Eno’s production which Moby believes is now part of his DNA; growing up, Moby had Low and Heroes spinning constantly on his turntable. One of the few tracks from Destroyed that Moby sings on, “The Day” is a deeply personal song about late night desperation and dark night of the soul feelings usually associated with some terrible addiction; these themes are woven throughout the journey that his new album takes us on.
