Moby has shared a new recording of “The Lonely Night”, which will appear on his forthcoming Reprise compilation of reworked originals with help from the Budapest Art Orchestra and other guest contributors.
Released on Friday, this 2.0 take on “The Lonely Night” features guest vocal work from Kris Kristofferson, who joins Mark Lanegan who sang on the original 2013 recording. The song first appeared on Moby’s 2013 album, Innocents.
“The song is about many things and obviously with lyrics, there is a lot of personal interpretation, but for me, the song is the dark knight of the soul, and the human condition,” Moby added about the track.
The famous songwriter and DJ had previously shared his reimagined recording of “Porcelain” featuring Jim James with the album’s announcement last month.
