Moby has announced his eleventh studio album, Innocents, for an October 1st release via his personal imprint, Little Idiot/Mute. The follow-up to 2011’s Destroyed features a rogue’s gallery of friendly faces, specifically The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, Mark Lanegan, Damien Jurado, Cold Specks, Inyang Bassey, and Skylar Grey.
“I spend most of my time alone in my studio, so for Innocents it seemed like a really nice idea to involve other people in the making of the record,” says Moby. “Working with all of these collaborators has helped me to make a record that I’m very proud of, and working this way also gave me some semblance of a social life.”
In anticipation, Moby’s dropped the album’s first single, “A Case for Shame”. The piano ballad, which feels stripped from 1999’s Play, features vocals by Ethiopian-Canadian singer Cold Specks.
Pre-orders are currently underway.
