Taken from his forthcoming album ‘All Visible Objects’, out on May 15th via Little Idiot, Moby is back with a new video for his single ‘Too Much Change’, which features vocals by Apollo Jane.
For the last 10 years or so Moby has been donating 100% of the profits from most of his work to animal and human rights charities. His free film music site, mobygratis, his festival Circle V, his restaurant, and his last few albums have all donated 100% of their profits to animal and human rights organizations. That’s not changed with ‘All Visible Objects’, the profits from which will also go to deserving causes close to Moby’s heart.
Although ‘Too Much Change’ is essentially a dance track, albeit one with icy synths propelled by disco beats, there’s heart-stopping pauses at the start, and for the verses, which pull at your emotions with these scarce, bare piano chords and Apollo Jane’s beautiful vocal.
The accompanying video features excerpts from American artist Lynd Ward’s wordless novel, Gods’ Man. Published in 1929 and designed using wood engravings, Ward’s creation helped usher in a new era of visual artistry by becoming a revered progenitor of modern graphic novels and comic books.
