The acclaimed musician and activist released ‘Play’ on 17 May 1999, featuring classics like ‘Porcelain’, ‘Natural Blues’ and ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’. The award-winning album has sold over 12 million copies worldwide and is the biggest-selling electronica album of all time.

Moby commented, “It’s been over 10 years since I’ve toured, but someone reminded me that 2024 is the 25th anniversary of the release of ‘Play’, so it seemed like it might not be the worst idea to do a short European tour to commemorate and celebrate. The show will feature well-known songs from ‘Play,’ but also a bunch of audience favourites, like ‘Extreme Ways’, ‘We Are All Made Of Stars’, ‘When It’s Cold I’d Like to Die’, and even some old rave bangers like ‘Feeling So Real’ and ‘Go’. What makes the tour most exciting for me is that I won’t be paid anything. 100% of my profits will go to European animal rights organizations.”

In addition, Moby has announced the release of his next album ‘always centred at night’, due out on 14 June 2024. The collaborative LP will feature collaborations with 13 different artists including the late Benjamin Zephaniah, serpentwithfeet, Gaidaa and more.

He has also shared the newest track from the collection, ‘dark days’ featuring acclaimed soul-jazz singer-songwriter Lady Blackbird.
