Producer Moby is has released his new album exclusively through a mobile app for sleeping and meditation.
The producer of 90’s hit Porcelain, Moby has teamed up with Calm Music for his latest release. His new album Long Ambients 2 was released today on World Sleep Day and will only be available exclusively through the Calm Music app for 30 days.
The app provides gentle music to be used for meditating or aiding sleep. With over 45 million downloads the app has a massive potential audience, making it a great move for Moby who will be opening his music up to a far wider audience than would likely listen to the album natively within the first 30 days.
Moby said of the album and it’s ambient direction: “I originally made these songs for myself because I couldn’t find this type of music anywhere. Long Ambients 2 was designed to help me sleep and to help other people find calm and maybe get a good nights sleep. I hope to share it with other people who have sleep issues or battle anxiety or have a hard time calming themselves down.”
The Calm Music apps co-founder, Michael Acton Smith OBE says: “We’re thrilled that Moby is choosing to launch his new album on Calm Music in a way that has never been done before. As Calm Music grows in popularity, more and more artists, including Grammy winners and household names, are now reaching out to us about having their work featured on Calm Music. But this partnership with Moby will take it to the next level.
“Music is the universal language; so it makes perfect sense that it’s such a big and growing part of Calm and our mission to make the world happier and healthier.”
Long Ambients 2 will release next month on all other music platforms.
