Here at Jammy Toast we have loved Moby’s work since we first watched the closing credits of the film “The Bourne Identity”. The music over the credits was Moby’s Extreme Ways and he has re-recorded the song with a different mix for every Jason Bourne film since. Moby explained in a 2012 interview, after re-recording the song for the fourth film, that the producers of the franchise sought a different musical work for the second film, but “simply ran out of time”, after which they accepted “Extreme Ways” as the accidental theme song for the entire series.
Last December, Moby announced his new trip-hop inspired album Everything Was Beautiful And Nothing Hurt in an interview with Billboard Magazine. Last month he released ‘This Wild Darkness’ as a single along with the video we are featuring today. On Twitter Moby described the song as “an existential dialog between me and the gospel choir. Me talking about my confusion, the choir answering with longing and hope.”
Moby also seems like a nice dude. He is a vegan and supports animal rights.
He has opened his own vegan restaurant named Little Pine in Los Angeles which opened for business in 2015. Moby personally runs the restaurant himself. In March 2016, he also supported the social media campaign #TurnYourNoseUp to end factory farming in association with the non-profit organisation Farms Not Factories.
His new album was released on Friday. This is This Wild Darkness from the new album…
