Moby has announced plans to re-release Hotel Ambient – an album that’s been hard to find since its 2005 release.
The new release will include unreleased tracks, including Blue Paper above, and be available on CD, vinyl and in digital formats.
Here’s what he has to say about Hotel Ambient:
a few years ago someone stopped me and asked if i knew where and how they could get a copy of ‘hotel ambient’. and in my ignorance i had to confess that, no, i had no idea where they could get a copy of ‘hotel ambient’. and then i realized that i didn’t even have a copy of ‘hotel ambient’, and i was the one who had made it.
so to that end we’re re-releasing ‘hotel ambient’.
it will also contain some new tracks and some extended tracks.
and it’s very, very quiet, as ambient music tends to be.
i’m also doing my first ever ‘ambient world tour’, which will consist of 2 shows, both of which are pretty close to my house.
the first show will be on december 16th at the masonic temple at the hollywood forever cemetery in los angeles (tickets available on friday). and the second show will be a fundraiser on december 21st for the integratron (which was designed by aliens) in joshua tree, california (sold out).
i think we’re re-releasing ‘hotel ambient’ on december 16th, or thereabouts. and yes, we’re releasing it on vinyl as well as cd and itunes and etc.
hopefully see you soon,
