Record Store Day 2013 yields a one-off collaboration between Moby and Mark Lanegan in the form of “The Lonely Night”. It’s a slow-moving, yet booming track, which will be available on limited edition 7″ backed by a remix from Photek.
The song’s awe-inspiring video, directed by Colin Rich, features stunning shots of a chillingly bare, but beautiful Mojave desert as well as a busy, glowing Los Angeles cityscape.
“With every project I undertake, there are certain emotional undertones that need to be translated into moving image and ‘Lonely Night’ provided to me a thematic of isolation and solitude,” Rich commented in a statement. “So I attempted to create a reflectively temporal voyage from ruin and desolation into the edge of civilization and back again.”
