The new album is now available as a free download:
“The music is free, but if you want to pay for it, just give money to your favorite charity. The issues that I’m personally most concerned about are: animal rights, factory farming, climate change, and women’s rights. Oh, and electoral reform in the USA. But it’s up to you!” Moby

Moby “Almost Home” (Best Friends Animal Society Lyric Video)
A few weeks ago i went up to Best Friends Pet Adoption and Spay & Neuter Center, an L.A. city location of Best Friends Animal Society, and made a short lyric video for ‘almost home’.
The video cost, roughly, $0, and it features a whole bunch of the dogs and cats who are available for adoption.
It’s always a good time to adopt an animal from a shelter, but it seems like an especially good time to adopt an animal, as it’s holiday / channukah / kwanzaa / saturnalia / festivus / etc.
So: i hope you like the video, and i hope you’re able to provide a home for a dog or cat (or gerbil or snake or any other shelter animal) this season.
There are viable (and usually better) alternatives to the use of animals for food, sport, clothing, & experimentation.
I beg you to discontinue any actions that might cause or condone animal torture, abuse, or destruction.

INFO > Assuming everyone is familiar with Mr. Richard Melville Hall, I’ll dispense with the customary background material. The motive for this post is to highlight Moby’s recent comments denouncing the musical merit of many contemporary pop stars. In an interview for Spinner, Moby deemed the tunes of Britney Spears, Ke$ha, Rihanna, and The Black Eyed Peas as “hyper-produced corporate product”, not music. Moby clarified that his observation isn’t a criticism, but specified that to call such emotionless output ‘music’ is “a misnomer”, and describes superficial hits as “advertising for ringtones.”
Okay, I like Moby (mainly for his advocacy efforts to promote animal welfare), but I can’t profess that his music has ever elicited any profound emotions. And yes, he sold out the “Play” album to countless adverts. However, his assessment of today’s chart-toppers is dead on. Auto-Tune killed the radio star…
