More, but not merrier

Moby's 11th outing finds him breaking out of his solitary shell and working with an interesting group of collaborators, but it somehow manages to hit a lethargic chord. 

MOBY/ INNOCENTS 

Earlier this year, in true Moby fashion, the artist officially announced the release of his new album, Innocents, via his YouTube channel. The one minute, 32 second clip shows the 48-year-old musician donning a wolf mask and stepping into a pool while a monotonous voice-over describes how the album has help from producer Mark Stent and a host of collaborators including Cold Specks, Damien Jurado and Skylar Grey. This will probably come as a surprise to those who've followed Moby for the past two decades and know he's a bit of a recluse who prefers to do things on his own. With Innocents, he seems to embrace a newfound confidence in working with others and that alone makes it rather intriguing.
