Nine Inch Nails to Deliver New Tunes in 2014 via Best-Of Set; Trent Reznor Reveals He's Working on Streaming Service
Published Dec 10, 2012Trent Reznor's 2012 has mostly focused on his How to Destroy Angels project, but back at the beginning of the year, he hinted at the return of Nine Inch Nails. Now, it's been revealed that at least two new songs will appear on a forthcoming best-of release.
An interview in the New Yorker [via Pitchfork] doesn't offer the details in full, like a tracklisting including the titles for the new material, but it does note that the greatest-hits set will drop in 2014, with a full-length to follow.
In other Reznor news, the innovator has detailed his collaboration with Dr. Dre and his Beats by Dre, and it's apparently a new streaming service tentatively called Daisy. The service, which is primed to premiere next year, "uses mathematics to offer suggestions to the listener... [but also] would present choices based partly on suggestions made by connoisseurs, making it a platform in which the machine and the human would collide more intimately."
Comparing Daisy to Spotify, Reznor explained that his service is superior, noting that his upcoming venture isn't an unguided free-for-all and "adds a layer of intelligent curation" for music seekers.
He went on to describe Daisy as "like having your own guy when you go into the record store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn't necessarily have encountered."
