Moby’s ‘A Case For Shame’ is the first track to be released from his highly anticipated new album ‘Innocents’, which comes out on 1 Oct .

Deluxe CD: http://smarturl.it/innocents2cd?IQid=…
iTunes LP (inc. ‘A Case For Shame’ instant download):http://smarturl.it/innocentsitunes?IQ…
Double Gatefold LP + CD: http://smarturl.it/innocentslp?IQid=y…

The collaboration with Cold Specks is a directorial debut from Moby and was shot by him at his home in Los Angeles.  It features the masked characters from the album cover, Cold Specks and Moby himself under water.

“the video has a specific meaning for me, but i’m hesitant to say what that is, as it might have a very specific meaning to you, and it’s completely open to anyone’s subjective interpretation. just because i made it doesn’t mean that my interpretation of it is the right one. i’d love to hear what you think of it and what your interpretation is.

oh, and it goes without saying, but it’s certainly not a big, commercial video… it’s an experimental video, inspired by some of my early heroes of experimental film, like jack smith (who also inspired fellini and andy warhol, so i guess at the very least i’m in good company in citing jack smith as an inspiration, even if i’m clearly not fellini or andy warhol…)”

LYRICS:

Cut off your nose
To spite your face
Slowly send your palms away

Draw fire crawl out
And seek the shade
Slowly send your palms away

A fine line will set you apart
Swallow my name, swallow it down
Sing me a song

Shoot the breeze
Shake my hand
across the fire, I caught your stare

Sing me a song
you today

A beacon will send you home

A fine line will set you apart
Swallow my name, swallow it down
Sing me a song.
Shoot the breeze
Shake my hand
across the fire, I caught your stare
Sing me a song
You today
Cut off your nose
to spite your face
Slowly send your palms away
I heard you say
I will not shame
You today
