Moby and David Lynch – Dynamic Duo

While listening to filmmaker David Lynch speak at the BAFTA Awards in February 2008, Moby had an epiphany. Lynch’s message – creativity for its own sake is a beautiful, wonderful thing – was a simple one, but it hit Moby with the force of the Zen master’s cane. “At that moment, I decided to just make records that were more personal,” says Moby, “maybe more experimental, and a little more challenging, maybe not as easy to like, but things that I found to be artistically and creatively more satisfying. That was the idea behind making the new album.”

The album resulting from this epiphany, Wait For Me (to be released on June 30, 2009 via Mute), is a radical departure from Moby’s recent albums and the video for the album’s debut track, a moody and contemplative instrumental called “Shot In The Back Of The Head,” is a beautiful dark animation directed by David Lynch.
