Moby & Mark Lanegan ‘The Lonely Night’

Moby & Mark Lanegan ‘The Lonely Night’

Music: ‘The Lonely Night’ by Moby & Mark Lanegan
Cinematography & Direction: Colin Rich (deer-dog.com)

In celebration of 2013’s Record Store Day, moby and Mark Lanegan have collaborated on an exclusive track to be released as a limited edition 7″ on 20th April. The Lonely Night 7″ comes backed with a remix from electronic music legend Photek and is being released on moby’s own label Little Idiot.

moby on collaborating with Mark Lanegan:

“i’ve been a fan of mark’s from his early sst records days, and i’ve always wanted to work with him. he has one of the best and most distinctive voices of the last 25 years. now that we live near each other it ended up being really easy working on a song together.”

moby on producing of The Lonely Night:

“…And in producing the song, spike stent and i incorporated some very unusual production techniques… we ran all of the instruments through a distortion pedal into a guitar amp. so really there are only 3 tracks: left channel through a distortion pedal and guitar amp, right channel through a distortion pedal and guitar amp, and mark’s vocals. The end result is intentionally very broken and atmospheric.”

Colin Rich a LA based director who specializes in time-lapse photography has been commissioned to shoot the video to accompany The Lonely Night. The video features both moby and Mark Lanegan and flits between the desolate and far removed terrain of the Californian desert and the endless electric city expanse of Los Angeles.

After Midnight

After Midnight

LA has a reputation for being an early city. The bars close at 2:00am, and many people don’t even make it that late. Yes, there are pockets of late night activity to be found around the city, but all in all, LA is sleepier than many big cities during the early morning hours.

But, when viewed from a more macro perspective, it is obvious that the city is still very much alive, pulsing with activity and lots of people moving around. During a recent shoot at Mt. Wilson in the San Gabriel Mountains, I ended up staying fairly late and became enthralled with the level of activity in the city below. I made a number of subsequent trips back to see and capture more during the early morning hours. I was also lucky enough to catch the entire LA basin fogged in after 2:00am one night, resulting in the dark night sky making an appearance above the shrouded city.

Mt. Wilson is only one of over 50 locations I’m visiting around the LA area for an upcoming project. I can’t wait to share more of this city, both the known and lesser known. Suffice it to say, there is much more to LA than most people imagine.
