While we still have to wait until October 1st to hear the new Moby album “Innocents”, a new video has already surfaced on YouTube. “A Case For Shame” showcases Moby’s collaboration with fellow Mute artist Cold Specks. The video is a directorial debut from Moby and was shot by Moby at his home in Los Angeles. It features the masked characters from the album cover, Cold Specks and Moby himself under water.

Says Moby: “‘A Case For Shame’ is the first video I’ve shot and directed for one of my songs, as in addition to directing I was also the camera person. The video narrative is as follows: I’ve drowned, and I’ve gone to an after-life inhabited by people who are concealing themselves because of shame. The masks are not meant to be conventionally frightening, the masks and sheets are being worn because the after-life people are hiding, because they’re ashamed.”

For the new record Moby worked for the very first time with an outside producer, namely Mark ‘Spike’ Stent. Other collaborators include Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips), Mark Lanegan, Cold Specks, Skylar Grey, indie-folk singer Damien Jurado, and Inyang Bassey who was the vocalist on “The Right Thing” from Destroyed.
