The Flaming Lips‘ Wayne Coyne is set to appear on Moby‘s new album, it has been announced.
The record, entitled ‘Innocents’, will be the solo star’s 11th studio album and will be released via his own label Little Idiot on October 1. Coyne – who provides vocals for the track ‘The Perfect Life’ – is just one of a host of special guests, which also includes Mark Lanegan and Damien Jurado, amongst others.
Speaking about the collaborations on the album, Moby said: “”I spend most of my time alone in my studio, so for ‘Innocents’ it seemed like a really nice idea to involve other people in the making of the record. Working with all of these collaborators has helped me to make a record that I’m very proud of, and working this way also gave me some semblance of a social life..”
Meanwhile, the first single to be taken from the record has been revealed to be ‘A Case For Shame’. The song is one of two on the album to feature Ethiopian-Canadian singer Cold Specks, who released her debut album ‘I Predict A Graceful Expulsion’ on Mute Records last year.
