Moby - Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt

The lead single, "Like A Motherless Child," is a re-work of the Southern spiritual of the same name.

Moby's next album, Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt, comes out in March. 

The new LP sees him returning to his "soul, trip-hop and gospel roots," the label says. The lead single, "Like A Motherless Child," featuring Los Angeles singer Raquel Rodriguez, is a loose cover of the well-known spiritual of the same name, which has its origins in the slave songs of the American South. "The track describes the void left when one feels separated from a parent, higher power or similar guiding force," the label continues. 

Moby also made a YouTube playlist of tracks that influenced "Like A Motherless Child." It begins with his new video for the single.
