Moby Reimagines His Past On New Classical-Inspired Album ‘Reprise’
The iconic musical pioneer Moby has released his anticipated new album Reprise today on the legendary Deutsche Grammophon label.
Additionally, Moby Doc, a powerful new feature-length documentary film opens in theaters today in New York and Los Angeles, and is now available on digital platforms across the US including Apple and Amazon. The film will also have an international (ex-North America) premiere stream today.
In support of Reprise, Moby made a memorable appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden. He offered a moving performance of “Natural Blues” with The Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra and Apollo Jane on lead vocals.
Reprise sees Moby revisiting musical highlights from his notable 30-year career. Together with the Budapest Art Orchestra, he has re-envisioned some of his most recognizable rave classics and anthems with new arrangements for orchestra and acoustic instruments. Reprise features an eclectic and impressive array of guests including Alice Skye, Amythyst Kiah, Apollo Jane, Darlingside, Deitrick Haddon, Gregory Porter, Jim James, Kris Kristofferson, Luna Li, Mark Lanegan, Mindy Jones, Nataly Dawn, Novo Amor, Skylar Grey and Víkingur Ólafsson.
The seeds for the project were sown when Moby was invited to take part in his first-ever classical collaboration―a live concert of his music at Walt Disney Concert Hall with his friend Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 2018.
Directed and edited by Rob Bralver, Moby Doc is distributed by Greenwich Entertainment. A surrealist biographical documentary narrated by Moby, Moby Doc sees the artist reflecting on his turbulent personal life and iconic music, from underground punk bands to chart-topping solo artist, and from struggling addict to vegan activist.
It features interviews with David Lynch and David Bowie along with extraordinary concert footage, utilizing a unique blend of re-enactments, interviews, and archival footage. The film is an insightful, unvarnished look at an artist whose traumatic childhood shaped him in profound ways.
