In support of his new release All Visible Objects, Moby has released a powerful animated video for his new single “My Only Love?”
A nod to the Roxy Music classic song of the same name, the video, created by the Brazilian animation studio Zombie through BlinkInk in London, chronicles the heartbreaking separation of a leopard and her cub in the face of a rampant deforestation of the Amazon at the hands of the meat and dairy industry. Yes, Moby is a diehard vegan activist and it definitely permeates into his work, but the result here is a cool video and a great song.
On the message behind the video, Moby shares, “It seems as if we’re confronted with new catastrophes on an almost daily basis, but while we deal with these horrors the climate emergency just gets worse and worse. And without the rainforests our planet will quickly become a scorching, uninhabitable wasteland. The goal of this video was to remind people of the ongoing horrors of climate emergency and deforestation, as well as reminding people that 90% of rainforest deforestation is a result of meat and dairy production.”
Reflecting on the creation of the “My Only Love” video, Zombie’s director, Paulo Garcia, says, “To work with someone who I’ve always admired is an incredible opportunity in itself. It’s made even better when the task he gives is to send a message to the world about the deforestation problem growing fast in my home country of Brazil. Lots of artists gave their best to make this music video happen. Beautiful music, strong visuals, amazing storytelling, its’s got everything we love most at Zombie.”
