|Moby premiered his latest video for 'The Perfect Life', a collaboration with The Flaming Lips' frontman, Wayne Coyne. The track is the second official single released from his upcoming record, Innocents, due out on October 1.|
Regarding the collaboration, Moby commented: "Wayne and I first met in 1995, when the Flaming Lips and I were both opening up for a Red Hot Chili Peppers’ European tour. We became friends, shared a dressing room and the same bad craft services, and watched the Chili Peppers from the side of the stage. I thought of Wayne for this song because the Flaming Lips have evolved in this very open, celebratory band when they play live, and that was the perfect vibe for what I was imagining for 'The Perfect Life.' I texted Wayne and said, 'Hey, I have a song-- want to sing on it?' Thirty seconds later, he texted me back: 'Yes, send it to me, it will be great."

Don't tell me what to do!
Digging: Dexter Gordon - Our Man in Paris
This is perhaps one the most boring tracks he's ever released.
Digging: The Knife - Deep Cuts
Yeah, this is a pretty generic track, much like The Day. Still, I have high hopes for Innocents, because Destroyed was really cool.
Digging: Mark Lanegan - Phantom Radio
and moby you can get stomped by obie
Digging: Burial (NL) - Relinquished Souls
Yea this track is pretty weak, even by moby's recent standards
I like his female vocal guests a bit more, he tends to stick more to his roots with them.
Yep this is totally average. And yeah, tracks with chicks are usually amazing. Although I do like it when Moby himself gets all dark and vocoded and shit too.
Moby's entire persona is based on mediocrity
