Last Night is the eight studio album by American electronica musician Moby, released on 29 March 2008. The first single in the UK was "Alice",[12] and in Europe was "Disco Lies" and the second single is "I Love to Move in Here"[13] followed by "Ooh Yeah".[14]

On his official website, Moby stated that this album is "a lot more dance-oriented and electronic than my last few albums, probably as a result of all of the DJ'ing I've been doing lately". He also wrote that:

Last Night is basically a love letter to dance music in New York City. What I love about the New York approach to dance music is the eclecticism and the open minded-ness on the part of the musicians, the DJ's, and the people in the bars and clubs. In making Last Night, I essentially tried to take a long 8 hour night out in New York City and condense it into a 65 minute long album.[citation needed]

The album was recorded in Moby's home studio in Manhattan, New York and features a number of guest vocalists, including Wendy Starland, MC Grandmaster Caz (one of the writers of "Rapper's Delight"), Sylvia from the band Kudu, British MC Aynzli, and the Nigerian 419 Squad.[15][dead link]

On November 3, 2008 in the UK and November 25, 2008 in the U.S., a remix album of Last Night entitled Last Night Remixed was released.

Last Night sold a mere 200,000 copies worldwide during its first month. It disappeared from the worldwide charts very quickly. Its total sales stand at a quarter of a million worldwide.[citation needed]

The low sales might also be attributed to Moby's US label, V2, getting out of the record making business. This forced Last Night to rely only on UK label Mute's limited distribution and promotion.[citation needed]
