MOBY & MARK LANEGAN TEAM UP FOR
SPECTACULAR ‘THE LONELY NIGHT’ VIDEO
Here’s a music video that needs to be seen…Moby and Mark Lanegan (of Screaming Trees fame) have teamed up on the song “The Lonely Night” (available on limited edition 7" released for this year's Record Store Day), and the beautiful time-lapse music video is a feast for the eyes.
Directed by L.A.-based cinematographer Colin Rich, “The Lonely Night” captures California as never seen before—from the desolate and far removed terrain of the Mojave Desert and the endless city expanse of Los Angeles.
"With every project I undertake, there are certain emotional undertones that need to be translated into moving image and ‘Lonely Night’ provided to me a thematic of isolation and solitude and so I attempted to create a reflective temporal voyage from ruin and desolation into the edge of civilization and back again,” director Rich says. “The project took me on my own voyage across the deserts of California, from the ruinous rotted landscapes of the Salton Sea, through the seemingly endless expanse of the Mojave Desert, and to the electric edges of Los Angeles."
Moby was introduced to Rich's work a few years back and immediately "fell in love with how slow and beautiful it was."
Moby says of his involvement with Rich: "I'm really excited to have an experimental music video from this great video artist, and I feel like the slow, rich, and languorous desert visuals fit the song perfectly."
