Classic Moby is back: "Like a motherless child"

Moby has released a new single and video for like a motherless child, from his forthcoming album everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.  Featuring LA-based soulstress Raquel Rodriguez, like a motherless child is a re-work of the well-known spiritual, with its origins in the slavery of the american south.

The track describes the void left when one feels separated from a parent, higher power or similar guiding force. Over the years this powerful song has been reinterpreted by the likes of odetta, lena horne, mahalia jackson and van morrison.
