Moby Gifts Love Letter to Animals for Valentine's Day

"A Simple Love" song from Moby's new album focuses on pigs in factory farms and the rescue workers that give them hope.

As a Valentine’s Day gift to animals, famed DJ and animal-rights activist Moby released a video for the single “A Simple Love” from his band’s (Moby & The Void Pacific Choir) new album These Systems Are Failing. “Happy Valentine's Day,” Moby said. "Here's my love letter to animals and the people who love and rescue them.” The video features powerful footage of pigs confined on factory farms, being transported to slaughter on trucks, and the activists who stand up for them. The video ends on a bright note—showing piglets being rescued from slaughter and living freely at animal sanctuaries. Powerful on-screen lyrics such as “keep me from fear” and “just give me kindness” are displayed throughout the video. Moby has spent much of his life fighting for animals, and his recent efforts have included organizing vegan festival Circle V in Los Angeles to benefit animal-rights organizations such as Mercy for Animals.
