Moby releases his new album exclusively on Calm
In celebration of World Sleep Day, Moby is releasing his dreamy new album, Long Ambients 2, exclusively in the Calm app.
“I originally made these songs for myself because I couldn't find this type of music anywhere.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 night's sleep. I hope to share it with other people who have sleep issues or battle anxiety or have a hard time calming themselves down.” — Moby
Long Ambients 2 is the sequel and companion piece to Moby’s Long Ambients 1: Calm. Sleep., a collection of minimalist music which Moby had created to help him sleep, meditate and relax. This new installment replicates the style of the original album, but takes the listeners on a deeper and more immersive journey with six soothing tracks running to approximately 37 minutes each.
We’re thrilled that Moby chose to launch his new album on Calm Music in a way that has never been done before. 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.
Moby first came to attention in 1991 with his international hit ‘Go’. He has consistently pushed boundaries in the world of electronica while also achieving critical and commercial success with huge albums such as ‘Play’ and ‘18’ contributing to a total of 20 million album sales. His creativity has continued through to the present day, most recently with the 2018 album ‘Everything Was Beautiful, and Nothing Hurt’. He’s also known as an animal rights activist and author, and has described himself on Twitter as “A Californian vegan sober meditator.”
Calm Music has boomed since its modest launch just 18 months ago. One of the world’s fastest growing music streaming platforms, its catalogue of almost 200 tracks has already amassed over 150 million streams. It’s top four music categories are, Sleep, Focus, Relax and NatureMelodies. Users can access it via the “Music” icon on the home screen of the Calm app or via calm.com.
