Watch Moby Reimagine 2000 Hit “Porcelain” In Stripped-Down Live Performance [Exclusive]

In a new episode of English record producer Nigel Godrich’s From The Basement video series, iconic musician Moby performs a stripped-down version of his hit record "Porcelain," putting a transformative spin on one of the most celebrated songs of his career.

The reimagined version replaces the swelling synth textures and wandering keys of the original with a minimalist acoustic arrangement. The live cello performance sets a melancholic tone with protracted bow strokes as Moby strums along to a modest melody on the acoustic guitar.

Moby chimes in with delicate vocals, channeling the authentic, doleful feelings of the fateful lost love that drove him to pen the turn-of-the-century hit in the first place. A group of backup vocalists complement him in the effort, including frequent collaborator Inyang Bassey, who previously connected with Moby on cuts such as "The Poison Tree" and "Don't Love Me."
