[ 24.11.2004 ] - Moby announces new releases


Moby has announced details of a brand new album and single, due for release on Mute in 2005. The album, «Hotel», Moby's fifth studio album, is out on March 14th and will be preceded by a single «Lift Me Up» on February 28th.

Recorded and mixed during 2004 at Moby's apartment, Electric Lady Studios and Loho Studios in Manhattan, «Hotel» continues in Moby's tradition of beautifully eclectic records and runs the gamut from quiet instrumentals, to anthems, to downtempo sultry jams, to uplifting electro-disco, to ballads.

The new fourteen track album features Moby's vocals on ten tracks and two duets and contains two instrumentals. This is his first album without vocal samples. Moby has played every instrument on the album (except for the live drums, played by Scott Frassetto) and is joined by Laura Dawn on vocals.

«Hotel», the album, was produced by Moby and engineered and mixed by Moby and Brian Sperber.
