New stuff from Moby: The Perfect Life Rooftop Acoustic Teaser
“The Perfect Life” is the brand new single from Moby, featuring Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips. The video for the “The Perfect Life” was shot in L.A with Coyne and Moby dressed as Mariachis. The video will be premiered on September 3.
Moby comments on the collaboration with Coyne: “Wayne Coyne and I ended up doing a duet on ‘The Perfect Life’: we sing the choruses together, and then go back and forth on the verses. Wayne and I first met in 1995, when The Flaming Lips and I were both opening up for a Red Hot Chili Peppers’ European tour. We became friends, shared a dressing room and the same bad craft services, and watched the Chili Peppers from the side of the stage. I thought of Wayne for this song because The Flaming Lips have evolved in this very open, celebratory band when they play live, and that was the perfect vibe for what I was imagining for ‘The Perfect Life.’ I texted Wayne and said, ‘Hey, I have a song – want to sing on it?’ Thirty seconds later, he texted me back: ‘Yes, send it to me, it will be great.”
The single is taken from Moby’s new upcoming album “Innocents” which was produced by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent. Next to Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips) the album also features Mark Lanegan, Cold Specks, Skylar Grey, indie-folk singer Damien Jurado, and Inyang Bassey who was the vocalist on “The Right Thing” from Destroyed.
