Moby Releases ‘Ambient 23’ Album To Help Anxiety

On Saturday (12.31) superstar deejay/producer/artist, Moby dropped his new album, Ambient 23.

The multi-talented musician (born Richard Melville Hall) announced the full length earlier this month, explaining that his new 16-track collection is inspired by several of his early ambient heroes, Martyn Ware, Brian Eno, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Will Sergeant, adding:

“It’s a bit different than some of my more recent Ambient records because it’s almost exclusively made with weird old drum machines and old synths.”

Upon its release, one day prior to the new year, Moby provided more background info on the two-and-a-half-hour-long LP, saying that It was “Made to help anxiety (my own, and hopefully yours, too),” he wrote on Instagram, alongside photos from his studio and a snippet of music from the album. “For 2023 may we all be less anxious (and may we all stop looking for validation from a culture we don’t respect…).”

About Ambient 23, the latest in a series of (his) ambient releases, he said “I presumptuously hope that if someone pays attention to the music/videos they’ll get something out of them, and I also hope that if someone just has the music/video playing quietly in the background that it will help create a feeling of calm and peace,” on his website.
