Moby’s 15th album ‘Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt’, has been given a March 2nd release date and fans are eagerly awaiting the new studio album.
Moby shared the first single featuring LA-based soul singer Raquel Rodriguez, ‘Like a Motherless Child’ back in December. It is a re-work of the popular song of the same title with its origins deep-rooted in the slavery of the South America.
Over the years the song has been interpreted by the likes of Lena Horne, Mahalia Jackson, Laura Mvula, Odetta and Van Morrison and describes the void left when a person feels separated from a parent or higher power.
The album has been described as a “glowing tapestry exploring spirituality, individuality and the brokenness of humanity and finds him returning to his orchestral, soul, trip-hop and gospel roots”.
Moby has curated a playlist of artists that influenced the recording of ‘Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt’. This playlist, which you can access on both Spotify and YouTube, will be the first place fans can hear this new music from Moby.
