After
by Moby

Album: Destroyed (2011)
  • Moby sings here (with the help of a vocoder) about messed-up relationships that have stopped working. He said: "What I really wanted to do with this song is have a middle section that goes on way too long and I hope I have achieved that. The song starts quiet and strange and then gets propulsive and energetic. And then about half way through the song it sort of stops for about a minute and a half and then it all comes back in. Whether anyone will notice this or care I don't know."
  • Flatbush, Brooklyn native Inyang Bassey supplies the backing vocals. She was two years into a day job producing concerts for the renowned Carnegie Hall when Moby invited her to tour with him.
