Reminiscing on a 30-year musical career, the DJ, producer, singer, photographer, activist, you name it known as Moby is reimagining 13 of his songs on Reprise, out May 28. The first track off Reprise takes on an ethereal vibe compared the original 1999 song.
Explaining the album’s creation, Moby explains in a press release, “Sorry if this seems self-evident, but for me the main purpose of music is to communicate emotion, to share some aspect of the human condition to whomever might be listening.” Reprise is meant to show how art can adapt over time.
Partnering with the Budapest Art Orchestra, his rave classics will take on new arrangements whether they be acoustic or orchestral and will feature artists from across the musical spectrum including Alice Skye, Amythyst Kiah, Darlingside, Deitrick Haddon, Jim James, Kris Kristofferson, Luna Li, Mark Lanegan, Nataly Dawn, Skylar Grey and Víkingur Ólafsson.
