Published Apr 01, 2009Well, it's official: Trent Reznor is taking the prize for being our favourite April Fool's Day prankster.
Following a Twitter message that reads "Brand new FULL LENGTH NIN record available now," the Nine Inch Nails man revealed Strobe Light, his totally new and totally fake Timbaland-produced album. The record - and obvious jab at Chris Cornell - comes fully loaded with Kanye glasses, duets between Fergie and Al Jourgensen, and a song called "Pussygrinder" featuring Sheryl Crow.
It also come with the following message from Trent and the tracklisting posted below:
