Moby has just announced a new album called ‘Reprise’ which is due for release on the classical music record label Deutsche Grammophon.
The album is a special celebration of Moby’s back catalogue with revitalised classics made in collaboration with the Budapest Art Orchestra.
In addition to the added orchestral sections the tracks on the album also feature guest collaborations with vocalists and artists from across the musical spectrum including Alice Skye, Amythyst Kiah, Apollo Jane, Darlingside, Deitrick Haddon, Gregory Porter, Jim James, Kris Kristofferson, Luna Li, Mark Lanegan, Mindy Jones, Nataly Dawn, Skylar Grey and Víkingur Alafsson.
Commenting on the album, Moby said “I long for the simplicity and vulnerability you can achieve with acoustic or classical music.” Some of the classic tracks featured on the album include hits such as Porcelain, Go, Extreme Ways, Natural Blues and Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?.
Adding the orchestral elements means some tracks are slower and more sombre, but others are more dramatic with a greater range in dynamics.
With a career that spans three decades, Moby is one of electronic music’s most accomplished artists, and ‘Reprise’ put a fresh twist on his timeless music.
The release date is scheduled for the 28th of May.
