What do you do when you realise you have everything you think you’ve ever wanted but still feel completely empty? What do you do when it all starts to fall apart?
On 2 May 2019 Faber Social will publish the second volume of Moby’s extraordinary life story. Then It Fell Apart is a journey into the dark heart of fame and the demons that lurk beneath the bling and bluster of the celebrity lifestyle. In summer 1999, Moby released the album that defined the millennium, Play. Like generation-defining albums before it, Play was ubiquitous, and catapulted Moby to superstardom. Suddenly he was hanging out with David Bowie and Lou Reed, Christina Ricci and Madonna, taking ecstasy for breakfast (most days), drinking litres of vodka (every day), and sleeping with super models (infrequently). It was a diet that couldn’t last. And then it fell apart.
‘Somehow this chronicle of a long, dark night of the soul also involves funny stories involving
Trump, Putin, and a truly baffling array of degenerates’ – Stephen Colbert
Then It Fell Apart is a classic about the banality of fame. It is shocking, riotously entertaining, extreme, and unforgiving.
Moby will tour Then It Fell Apart starting in the US on the 4th of May through to 20th May; he will then head to the UK in June for the Hay Festival (as well as dates in London, Manchester and Dublin.)
