Moby Goes Mute
Moby has signed a domestic deal with Mute Records, the label that has distributed him internationally since 1993. Mute’s other notable electronic artists include Paul Van Dyk, Goldfrapp and Erasure. After the implosion of V2 Records, Moby was left without a domestic label, however that changed when the licensing tour-de-force decided to go local.
“A: I live a few blocks from Mute U.S headquarters, B: the people at Mute U.S. are my friends, and C: the people at Mute U.S are smart and love music,” Moby was recently quoted as why he went with Mute.
The New York-based artist has been working on his next studio album for the past year but has yet to announce a release date. The set will be the follow-up to 2005’s “Hotel.”
