Moby announces the release of his new single ‘Lie Down In Darkness’, out August 15th. Taken from his most recent studio album ‘Destroyed’ (and self-released on Moby’s very own label Little Idiot), ‘Lie Down In Darkness’ is an achingly soulful track of sublime melancholy and symphonic grandeur.
The track ‘Lie Down In Darkness’ (which takes its title from William Styron’s strange dark novel of the same name) and accompanying remix bundle will be made available as a download only. The full remix bundle includes the original album version along with an array of remixes including, among others, Arno Cost, Chris Liebing, Photek, Michael Mayer and Paul Van Dyke.
Moby’s next UK live appearance will be on July 31st at The Roundhouse in Camden, where he is set to close this year’s iTunes Festival. This date follows his recent sold out show at the same venue. To win tickets for this event go to: www.itunesfestival.com
Moby will also be making an appearance at the Apple Store, Regent Street on August 1st at 7.00pm for a special event, where he will talk about his photography and how his photo book Destroyed came together. Moby’s Destroyed photo exhibition, which features selected images from his book, is currently touring Europe and will close a successful run at The Proud Gallery in London on June 19th.

Finally, Moby has partnered with Saatchi & Saatchi and Vimeo to set up a competition in support of young filmmakers. Interpreting the theme of “Hello, Future” in the form of a music video for one of three of Moby’s tracks from Destroyed (“Be The One”, “The Day”, or “After”), the competition has prompted an unprecedented response with almost 600 entries coming in from young directors across the globe. “I’m overwhelmed in a really positive way, by the number of people competing, and the quality of the entries,” enthuses Moby.

The competition winner will be announced at this year’s Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase in Cannes on June 23rd. For more details check out www.moby.com
