On collaborating with vocalist Damien Jurado, Moby said: "One thing that makes L.A. great is you live in your cars, so you listen to a lot of radio; there, public radio stations like KXLU and KCRW are actually valid, big stations that people listen to. One day, I was listening to Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW, and I heard a Damien Jurado song. I simply fell in love with his voice - this most beautiful, vulnerable, pristine, angelic voice.

What he did was much better than anything I'd come up with."
Almost Home is due to drop on 24th February via Little Idiot, pre-order here.
