Musician and activist Moby will release his new album, Always Centered At Night, on 14 June.

The album is a collaborative project, wherein Moby collaborates with some of his favourite vocalists and he recently shared the track, Dark Days, featuring acclaimed soul-jazz singer-songwriter Lady Blackbird.

A defiant and rhythmic work, Dark Days is propelled by Lady Blackbird’s alluring, deep vocals and earnest soul. Watch below:

The album coincides with the announcement that the artist will be celebrating 25 years of Play by performing his greatest hits in Europe in September – his first live dates in over a decade.

Released on 17 May 1999, Play featured the classics Porcelain, Natural Blues and Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? selling more than 12 million copies worldwide and becoming the biggest-selling electronic album of all time.

Moby said: “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 tour profits will go to European animal rights organisations.”
