Moby annouces Wait For Me; Shot in the Back of the Head by David Lynch

Today, a free download of “Shot in the Back of the Head,” will be available on Moby’s website. David Lynch directs this debut video, as it was a 2008 speech by Lynch that worked Moby’s inspiration for the album: “David was talking about creativity, and to paraphrase, about how creativity in and of itself, and without market pressures, is fine. it seems that too often creative output is judged by how well it accommodates the marketplace, how much market share it commands and how much money it generates. In making this record i wanted to focus on making something that i loved, without really being concerned about how it might be received by the marketplace. as a result it’s a quieter, more melodic, more mournful and more personal record than some of the records i’ve made in the past” – Moby

Moby recorded his upcoming album Wait For Me, in his home studio. He drew the album artwork with a black sharpie on copy paper, got his friends to record the vocals, and asked another friend, photographer Jessica Dimmock, to take the press photos. Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, Throbbing Gristle, M83) helped Moby mix the record, using analog equipment in true stereo. Wait For Me will be released on June 30th via Mute Records.
