“Music From Porcelain” is the companion album to Moby’s memoirs book entitled, Porcelain
“Music From Porcelain” is the companion album to Moby’s memoirs book entitled, Porcelain, which is a collection of newly re-mastered versions of classics including “Go!,” “Honey,” “Natural Blues” and “Bodyrock,” among many others, combined with a hard to get collection of classic Electronic music recordings from artists from 808 State to A Tribe Call Quest. “Music From Porcelain” is out now on Thrive Music.
“The music in ‘porcelain’ is almost as important a character in the book as i am. to that end I’ve compiled a collection of songs written about in the book, both mine and other people’s, in a little time capsule to accompany it. These songs all remind me of the New York that I lived in and was smitten with from 1989 – 1999,” -Moby says.
Moby was an unlikely fit in the club scene of late ‘80s and early ‘90s New York City. A devout Christian, vegan, straight white kid from the suburbs, he was an outlier in a world dominated by people of color, gays, drug use and general debauchery. And yet, Moby was able to not only to break into one of the most difficult scenes in the entertainment field, but to also build a thriving career and go on to become one of the most interesting and iconic musicians of our time. By turns funny, disquieting, and moving, his unforgettable memoir, PORCELAIN, he recounts the ups and downs of his fledgling career.
In support of the release, there will also be a set of remixes of Moby’s classic songs coming soon featuring Hardwell, Cedric Gervais, Arty, Loco Dice, among others.
Moby is in the midst of a North American Book Tour through the end of June. Check out all the dates below.
