"Into the Blue" is a song by American electronica musician Moby. It was released as the fourth single from his third studio album Everything Is Wrong on June 19, 1995.[1] American musician Mimi Goese co-wrote the song with Moby and provided the vocals. The song is slow and melancholy, a stark contrast to the first four singles from the album.

The single peaked at number 34 on the UK Singles Chart.[2] In one of the remixes, the "Spiritual Remix", Joy Division's song "Atmosphere" is prominently sampled and sequenced. Jon Spencer, frontman of American alternative rock band Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and a friend of Moby, contributed the blues-influenced "Into the Blues Mix" to the single, and in turn Moby remixed one of the band's own tracks.[1]
