Moby Returns, Lynchian

By

Since the runaway — that is, never to return — success of Play, Moby has maintained a certain respectability, becoming a strangely powerful New York nightlife fixture and releasing three follow-up albums that no one really remembers, but no one really hates, either. He’s reached the point where he's ready to do whatever he wants — like release the upcoming Wait for Me. Announced today on his website (via Stereogum), it was apparently recorded in his bedroom and full of guest spots from his random buds from Washington Heights. For the video to the actually pretty-good instrumental single “Shot in the Back of the Head,” Moby enlisted at least one friend who does not, as far as we know, live in Washington Heights — the somber, scratchy animation is courtesy of David Lynch.
