Midge Ure – Dark Dark Night (2014)

“Dark Dark Night” is a collaboration with Moby that Midge Ure says started via an Internet contact from Moby to work together on something for his latest album, 2013’s Innocents. “I was very flattered and intrigued,” Ure recalls, “so he sent me a couple of tracks he was working on, one of which is the core of ‘Dark, Dark Night.’ Although I was in the middle of working on Fragile I eventually did my thing to it, adding lyrics and keys and guitar — by which time he had finished and released his album. I asked much later if he minded if I include it on my album, as it then felt a part of what I was doing. It works seamlessly with the feel of Fragile.” Ure adds that he and Moby “have never met nor spoken, but I’m hoping to change that in the not too distant future.” Their paths may cross during the next few weeks, in fact: Ure will join Howard Jones, Tom Bailey of Thompson Twins and others on the Retro Futura Tour 2014, which begins Aug. 19 at the Iridium in New York, and he’ll follow with solo acoustic dates that start Sept. 7 in Vancouver.
