"Many years ago, a young and naive Nine Inch Nails were asked what TV shows they'd be interested in appearing on," Trent Reznor wrote yesterday via Twitter, "As a joke (and likely drunk), they thought of the most absurd choice they could come up with at the time. They were then informed their bluff had been called and were actually booked on said show."
December 9 saw the release of the soundtrack for the upcoming film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo written by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Among the tracks was a collaboration between Rezor and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O, a cover of Led Zeppelin's "The Immigrant Song."
With Nine Inch Nails on ice at the moment, NIN fans can at least be reassured that Trent Reznor is keeping busy making new music. Most of the new music we've heard from Reznor lately has come in the form of film scores -- one of which, The Social Network, won a freakin' Oscar -- so it's no surprise that the new music we're bringing you today comes from his latest film project, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has long had a love-hate relationship with Twitter, with his account often going dormant for months on end. Not so today, with Reznor initially posting a message inviting fans to use his few Spotify invites, then tearing into his old record label for their recent reissue of Nine Inch Nails' debut album, Pretty Hate Machine.
