Last night, Moby and his band performed a stirring rendition of “This Wild Darkness” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Joining Moby was Vy Higginsen’s Sing Harlem Choir from the Mama Foundation for the Arts. “This Wild Darkness” is the penultimate track on Moby’s recently released fifteenth studio album, Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt. Watch the Late Show below.
Reflecting on the urgent beauty of “This Wild Darkness,” Moby says, “’the world is a baffling place, full of confusion and darkness. ‘This Wild Darkness’ is essentially an existential dialog between me and the gospel choir – me talking about my confusion, the choir answering with longing and hope.” Watch the video for “This Wild Darkness.”
