As Trent Reznor and friends prepare to take Belsonic, another track from the excellent new Hesitation Marks (awarded a very healthy eight out of ten in the new issue of Hot Press) album has surfaced on BBC Radio 1.
'Everything' is something of a change of pace, boasting oddly cheery vocals and a guitar line that sounds like a splice of The Cure and The Strokes. It's but a few hours old and it's already dividing staunch NIN fans down the middle. Our verdict? Awesome! Have a listen below.
Trent Reznor has had a busy few months – in between the release of Hesitation Marks, their well received 2013 album, and scoring David Fincher’s adaptation of Gone Girl, he was appointed Creative Director of Beats Music for their launch in 2013.Read More

Although Trent Reznor has been tried and been found guilty for taste crimes in the international court of pop-cultural opinion (his semi-legendary and frighteningly authentic pseudo snuff-movie, the Peter Christopherson-directed Broken, remains banned on this side of the Atlantic) personally speaking, I have generally found the singer’s fascination with extreme horror imagery, S&M and general underground depravity to be the least startling aspect of his estimable oeuvre.Read More
Whatever Trent Reznor’s been up to for the past five years he hasn’t been exorcising his personal demons. 'The Hand That Feeds' is as dark as ever and is an absolute mighty record, barely hiding its pop melody beneath the distorted keyboards and Reznor’s help-me-God vocals.

COURTNEY LOVE’S dismissal of Trent Reznor as a farmboy who’d never really seen The Horror was glib but off-the-mark: any Deliverance fan will tell you there’s as much atrocity to be found in redneck terrortory as the urban sprawl, and Columbine scenarios are an epidemic endemic to the sticks, not the inner city.Read More
