“‘The Day’ was written in a hotel room in Spain at dawn when I hadn’t slept. It was a beautiful hotel room, a beautiful perfect hotel room and it was six or seven in the morning. I wrote it on a acoustic guitar and recorded it on my phone, brought it home and re-recorded it with old broken down electronics that I have in my studio”. - Moby
The Day was indirectly inspired by David Bowie and Brian Eno’s production which Moby believes is now part of his DNA; growing up, Moby had Low and Heroes spinning constantly on his turntable.
