|Electronica guru Moby has returned with a new album, "Play," which is drawing rave reviews for its combination of live instruments (all of which Moby plays) and the field recordings made by historian Alan Lomax.
Last week Moby took to the stage at a Virgin Records store in Manhattan to debut his new live show. During the set, Moby entertained requests from the audience, and one fan called out for an old GN'R classic -- and Moby seemed more than happy to oblige.
A few weeks earlier, MTV News asked Moby, who turned down an offer to produce the next Guns N' Roses album, if he had any advice to offer Axl and company about their long-awaited new record.
"My advice to them would be to stop worrying about it and just make a record," Moby said. "Go into the studio for a month and at the end of the month, your record has to be finished. Go in and play and have fun and sing songs and don't worry about selling billions of records, just have fun and make a nice record. At this point, they've spent so many years on it, and they don't seem to be any closer to actually having a finished record."
Look for Moby to release a new single, "Bodyrock," prior to hitting the road for a U.S. tour starting in late July and continuing through August.
