The artist says the tunes "are definitely in the 'fun but very rough' camp of punk rock songs."

Moby will hit the studio "to record a bunch of punk rock songs," according to a post on his Web site. "Over the last year I've written lots and lots of punk rock songs, and now I'm going to record them with [drummer] Scott [Frassetto]."

The artist says the tunes "are definitely in the 'fun but very rough' camp of punk rock songs." In addition, he plans to reactive his Voodoo Child moniker for a new album, his first from that project since 2004's "Baby Monkey." That set debuted at No. 11 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums chart.

"The Voodoo Child songs are very melodic and electronic and experimental, and not exactly club-classic floor-fillers," he says.

No release dates are in the offing for either project, and Moby cautions, "I have no idea when/if they'll ever be released. If we don't release them you can always come by [his New York cafe] Teany and I'll make copies for you."

Moby's latest proper studio album, "Hotel," debuted in April at No. 28 on The Billboard 200.
