When offbeat artiste Moby returns the scene, the guy really knows how to make a reappearance.
“Destroyed” happens to be the title of both of his newly released projects, out May 17, an album and a book of 55 photographs he’s taken around the world. And he’s already offered the set’s first single as not only a free download (in Yeasayer-remixed form) but in a surreal hospital-set video clip, as well, starring Heather Graham as a nurse.
The record was tracked in analog, and mixed on a 1972 Neve mixing board from Abbey Road. But that’s just on the musical side of things.
For the book, National Geographic is hosting an already sold-out multimedia event in Washington, “Music ... On Photography,” wherein rockers will share their private pictures of the world as they see it.
From May 12 through June 26, New Yorks Clic Gallery will be running his exhibit, “Destroyed: Photographs By Moby,” and on May 12 at the Brooklyn Museum, he’ll sit down for a live chat with WNYC’s John Schafer as part of the museum’s “Thursday@7.”
Then, Moby’s pix hit the trail, arriving in L.A. in September at the Kopeikin Gallery. He’s not only back, he’ll be back for many months to come.
