In celebration of 2013's Record Store Day, moby and Mark Lanegan have collaborated on an exclusive track to be released as a limited edition 7" on 20th April. The Lonely Night 7" comes backed with a remix from electronic music legend Photek and is being released on moby's own label Little Idiot.
moby on collaborating with Mark Lanegan:
"i've been a fan of mark's from his early sst records days, and i've always wanted to work with him. he has one of the best and most distinctive voices of the last 25 years. now that we live near each other it ended up being really easy working on a song together."
moby on producing of The Lonely Night:
"...And in producing the song, spike stent and i incorporated some very unusual production techniques... we ran all of the instruments through a distortion pedal into a guitar amp. so really there are only 3 tracks: left channel through a distortion pedal and guitar amp, right channel through a distortion pedal and guitar amp, and mark's vocals. The end result is intentionally very broken and atmospheric."
Colin Rich a LA based director who specializes in time-lapse photography has been commissioned to shoot the video to accompany The Lonely Night. The video features both moby and Mark Lanegan and flits between the desolate and far removed terrain of the Californian desert and the endless electric city expanse of Los Angeles.
