Musical pioneer Moby offers an irresistible taster from his Deutsche Grammophon debut album, Reprise, with “The Lonely Night”. Out today, 16 April 2021, the single sees former Screaming Trees frontman and singer-songwriter Mark Lanegan in duet with actor and country legend Kris Kristofferson. Their vocals merge with guitar, piano, organ and strings to reveal new acoustic perspectives on one of Moby’s personal favourite songs.
“The Lonely Night” provides the next glimpse into Reprise, set for release on 28 May. Moby’s first collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon also includes re-imagined versions of such hits as “Go”, “Porcelain”, “Extreme Ways”, “Natural Blues” and “Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?”.
