From Moby: "Emily's vocals brought a unique dark and melodic texture to 'The Low Hum.' I've wanted to work with her ever since she auditioned for a rock project I started. She has remarkable talent and passion for all kinds of music. I'm excited to hear her new record."
Emily says of the collaboration, "He gave me a bunch of instrumental compositions and asked me to write to ones that struck me. His only request was to steer clear of strict narrative and make the lyrics more introspective and vague. We did a bunch of demos and one of our collaborations was 'The Low Hum.'"
The album called "Destroyed" will be released along with a photo book displaying a collection of photography Moby has shot over the years.
In addition to the Moby collaboration, Emily sang the theme song to the new NBC show "Love Bites," which is scheduled to debut on this June.
