Coming Monday, Moby will release his new album “Destroyed”. For everyone else who doesn’t feel like waiting, the album can now be streamed on a special subsite of Moby’s website. But there’s more to it. From the intro page:
i don’t sleep very well when i travel. and as a result, i tend to be awake in cities when everyone else is asleep. that’s where this album, and the pictures that accompany it come from. it was primarily written late at night in cities when i felt like i was the only person awake (or alive), a soundtrack for empty cities at 2 a.m, at least that’s how i hear it. the pictures were taken on tour while i was writing the album. i wanted to show a different side of touring and traveling. a side that is often mundane, disconcerting, and occasionally beautiful.
The site lets you look at those pictures while listening to the music. In addition, Moby has teamed up with every hipster’s favourite photo application Instagram. Take a picture, tag it with #destruction and it’ll show up on the map.
