‘The Day’ was written in a hotel room in Spain at dawn when I hadn’t slept. It was a beautiful hotel room, a beautiful perfect hotel room and it was six or seven in the morning. I wrote it on a acoustic guitar and recorded it on my phone, brought it home and re-recorded it with old broken down electronics that I have in my studio”. – moby
The Day was indirectly inspired by David Bowie and Brian Eno’s production which moby believes is now part of his DNA; growing up, moby had Low and Heroes spinning constantly on his turntable. One of the few tracks from Destroyed that moby sings on, The Day is a deeply personal song about late night desperation and dark night of the soul feelings usually associated with some terrible addiction; these themes are woven throughout the journey that his new album takes us on.
