Moby - Destroyed: Wikipedia Album Entry
Destroyed is the tenth studio album by the musician Moby, with a release date of May 16, 2011. Moby announced the title, track listing and release date of the album on his website on February 15, 2011. A photography book of the same name will be released in conjunction with the album.
The majority of the recording was done while Moby was touring. He'd stay up in his hotel room because of his insomnia and work on music at odd times of day such as two in the morning. He said "it seemed as if everyone else in the world is sleeping." He would take any incomplete tracks back to his apartment, where, using his collection of unique instruments, he would finish them. His friends Emily Zuzik, Inyang Bassey, and Joy Malcom (as well as Moby himself) sang on the record. Musically, Moby summed it up as "broken down melodic electronic music for empty cities at 2 am." He says the title of the album makes sense when he listens to the music.
