Moby is releasing a new album, Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt, this Friday (March 2) via Mute. When the album was announced he shared a video for its first single, “Like a Motherless Child,” which was later followed by a video for another new song from the album, “Mere Anarchy.” Now he has shared a video for a third new song from the album, “This Wild Darkness.” Moby co-directed the video with Rob Bralver. It’s mainly black & white, with brief flashes of color, and shows images of war and devastation, intercut with Moby singing the song with a backing choir. There’s also a sci-fi element, with images of Earth from a spaceship flying away. Watch it below.

Moby had this to say about the song in a press release: “The world is a baffling place, full of confusion and darkness. ‘This Wild Darkness’ is essentially an existential dialog between me and the gospel choir - me talking about my confusion, the choir answering with longing and hope.”

A previous press release described Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt as such: “The album is a glowing tapestry exploring spirituality, individuality and the brokenness of humanity and finds Moby returning to his orchestral, soul, trip-hop and gospel roots.”

In the not too distant past Moby released two more rock orientated albums credited to Moby and the Void Pacific Choir: 2016’s These Systems Are Failing and this year’s More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse.
