Moby, one of the most innovative and individual forces in new electronic music today is back with arguably one of the best albums of his career, Innocents.
“The Perfect Life” the new single from the ablum is an electronic soul track which showcases the collaborations album to dramatic effect. Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips joins Moby to deliver an uplifting and melodic anthem.
The much-anticipated video for the “The Perfect Life” was shot in L.A with Coyne and Moby dressed as Mariachis. The casting call was posted on Moby’s Facebook and included some very specific extras, "S&M gimp rhythmic gymnast", "eight roller-skating ghosts", "12 goth choir members", "2 obese bearded bikers in red speedos", "a punk rock brass brand" and "a drunk king: guy with beard age 35-50."
Here's what Moby had to say about it:
A few weeks ago Wayne and I spent the day making a video for 'The Perfect Life'. then at the end of the day we broke out an acoustic guitar and gathered all of the extras on a rooftop overlooking L.A and sang an unrehearsed, impromptu version of the song. Please keep in mind we had no idea what we were doing.
The video will be premiered on September 3, details to be announced. Watch the video trailer here-
