Moby's New Album!

Moby, 44, broke out into the music scene in the early 90's by creating hypnotic dance and ambient electronic music. Go, his first single to reach the masses opened the gates for his 1999 album, “Play,” which went multi-platinum popularizing electronica in the U.S. and across the globe.  Moby describes his upcoming album, "Destroyed," as "broken down melodic electronic music for empty cities at 2 a.m." The scheduled release is to hit stores mid-May.

The inspiration:
"so, the title: 'destroyed'. i was in laguardia airport and my flight was delayed and i was wandering around and i saw a small sign that said 'unattended luggage will be destroyed', but the sign only fit one word at a time so i waited until it read 'destroyed' and i took a picture and somehow the picture and the title make sense to me when i listen to the music on the album and when i look at the other pictures in the book and yes this is a huge long run on sentence about the title and cover image of the book and album but i like run on sentences because they remind me of 'a prayer for owen meany' by john irving." - Moby Feb. 15, 2011

Be the One is the first single to be released off "Destroyed"
