Trent Reznor Is A Busy Man! Writing Songs PLUS Collaborating With Dre To Take On Spotify!

Filed under: Music Minute

Trent Reznor is the prime example of how success breeds success!

After establishing himself in the "biz" with his ultra cool 90's band Nine Inch Nails, his career has soared to new heights.

Recently, he's created original compositions for films such as The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. And he's just getting started!

Now, he's composing two new songs for the Nine Inch Nails greatest hits CD, and hopes to write enough new material for a whole new album afterwards.

He's also planning a music streaming service with Dr. Dre that the two hope will provide internet users a much BETTER alternative to what's currently out there aka Spotify.

El Paso Arsonist Claims Marilyn Manson And Nine Inch Nails Told Her To Burn Down Father's Home

This woman is super-duper cray cray!

Christina Paz faces arson charged after she set her childhood house ablaze.

Her reasoning: Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails music told her that her parents and neighbor wanted to kill her, chop her up, and dipose of her.

Creepy!!!

Could Nine Inch Nails Be Due For A Comeback In 2012?!

Filed under: Music Minute

nine-inch-nails.jpg

Maybe, if we read into what Trent Reznor saif to BBC Radio1 this week!

Two years ago, Nine Inch Nails went on an indefinite hiatus when Trent wanted to venture off and start his new band How to Destroy Angels. It's been rough for fans who have started to believe that getting NIN back together will never happen.

Never say never, friends.

The other day, Trent was doing an interview with BBC Radio1 and he teased this little tidbit about his plans for 2012:

Trent Reznor Tells Fans To Boycott Re-Release Of NIN Album

Filed under: Music Minute

trent-reznor-tells-fans-to-boycott-rerelease.jpg

In a move to stick it to the man, Trent Reznor is urging fans to boycott the re-release of his 1989 Nine Inch Nails' album Pretty Hate Machine.

Universal Music record execs are re-releasing the album without any sort of digital re-mastering to improve the sound quality of the original.

Reznor wrote:

NIN fans, don't waste your money on this version of PHM that was just released … a record label bullshit move repackaging the old version. Ignore please.

Wow, that is a pretty shady move. If they're going to re-release, Universal should at least re-master it or include never-before-heard music. Pretty awesome of Trent to go against his label and warn the fans.

Trent Reznor Talks Music, Acting, And The Return Of Nine Inch Nails!

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm Flickers

trent-reznor-says-that-nine-inch-nails-is-not-over

Amazing!

As much as we've LOVED his soundtrack work, we're thrilled that we'll have more Nine Inch Nails soon!

Trent Reznor recently took his blog to discuss his work on the score of David Fincher's The Social Network and now The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, his return to NIN, and most surprisingly of all, his CAMEO in the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter!

He writes:

What a surreal week, capping of an equally surreal few months! Thank you all for the support and kind words throughout. I need to once again point out the reason that score worked so well was David Fincher. We were simply executing his vision and it was an honor and an eduction working with him. Which brings me to:

The Girl WIth the Dragon Tattoo. Atticus and I are hard at work scoring David's next film, which will be opening this Christmas. We've been composing quite a bit of music for this and have just begun to see some of what's been shot. Trust me when I say this film (and of course the music!) will not disappoint.

Perhaps I misspoke on the red carpet or wherever it was I said the new How To Destroy Angels record is finished - it is not. We've been working since last summer on it and are due to mix it this summer for a fall release. We've spent a lot of time experimenting and finding our own sound and identity this time around and we're very happy with the results. The three columns of things I'm currently funneling music into - HTDA, NIN and film work - I believe will start to make more sense to you (and me) as everything unfolds. By having a few different outlets for my work I'm finding more inspiration within each one. No, Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next.

And finally, I am friends with Timur Bekmambetov. He's an interesting and very talented director that caught my attention with his film Night Watch (check it out if you haven't). He asked me if I was interested in scoring his new film he's doing with Tim Burton entitled "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". I was familiar with the book, read the script and it felt like an interesting challenge as a composer - very different from the Fincher films. While discussing the film with Timur he started gently pressing me to play a small role in the film.

The idea was a cameo-esque role that would be kept under wraps and be a surprise around opening night. I was considering this when I awoke a few days ago to the news I am now STARRING in ALVH (which is obviously not true). Fuck. We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore.

So… do me a favor and act surprised, OK?

Holy shiz!

A new album, a new score AND a small role?! We can't wait to see what it entails!

There's certainly quite a bit to look forward to!

Keep up the good work, Trent!

Trent Reznor In Talks To Score AND Star In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersOscars

trent reznor in talks to score and star in abraham lincoln vampire hunter

After winning the Oscar for his score to The Social Network, it looks like Trent Reznor is being sought after, especially by 20th Century Fox.

The studio is currently in talks with Reznor to both compose the score for AND star in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as Jack Barts, "the vampire who kills Lincoln’s mother and sets the hero on his path of righteous vengeance."

If his acting skillz can live up to musical abilities, he'll be in great shape!

…Who ever thought the dude from Nine Inch Nails would be in a position like this? Ha!

Rolling Stone Teases New GaGa Tracks!

Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

rolling-stone-magazine-previews-new-lady-gaga-songs-from-born-this-way

The more and more we hear, the more excited we get!

Lady GaGa recently gave Rolling Stone Magazine a PREVIEW of song of the new tracks from her upcoming album, Born This Way (JEALOUS!), and if they're all as good as they're described to be, then we think we have QUITE the record on its way! Not that we ever doubted that it would be anything short of PERFECTION!

The upcoming songs include:

Judas:

Currently scheduled as the second single from the album, Judas is a classic Lady GaGa pop banger with three huge hooks, a thumping house music breakdown and a vocal part that borrows a bit of Rihanna's distinctive cadence. GaGa has written about falling for the wrong guy before in Love Game and Bad Romance, but this time around she's a bit less dark and dramatic. There's a bubbly sweetness in her voice as she sings "I'm just a horny fool / baby it's so cool / I'm still in love with Judas, baby."

Edge of Glory:

This one sounds crazy in print — it's a massive power ballad with heavy club beats that features Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band wailing on his saxophone (Clemons also plays on Hair) — but somehow it all seems totally natural when you actually hear it. There's an element of cheesiness to it, but it's totally captivating and incredibly catchy. If any of these new GaGa tunes demands to be a big fat hit, this is it. The inclusion of Clemons is an inspired touch that amplifies the song's Eighties stadium rock vibe, but his actual performance is amazing and ranks among the best of his career.

Scheiße:

A remixed version of this number was used in a recent runway show by fashion designer Thierry Mugler. The album version doesn't have the same hardcore European house flavor, but it's definitely the tune most likely to bring back memories of early-Nineties dance crossover hits by C&C Music Factory, Snap and RuPaul. The opening of the song — in which she flatly intones "I don't speak German, but I can if you like" — is fierce, but the song is saved from being a slight novelty by a soaring chorus that vaguely recalls Survivor's Eye of the Tiger.

Hair:

Hair is another inspirational song in the mold of Born This Way, but it's a bit weirder, mixing the yearning romantic melodrama of Pat Benetar's We Belong with the hard industrial metal edge of Broken-era Nine Inch Nails. The lyrics are essentially about embracing one's hairstyle as the ultimate expression of their identity, climaxing with GaGa triumphantly declaring "I am my hair!" in its huge sing along chorus. An anthem for hair salons everywhere.

You and I:

GaGa didn't share the studio version of this theatrical rock ballad, but she did perform it in her concert later in the evening. This one has been part of her Monster Ball setlist for months now, and at this point it's already a crowd-pleasing showstopper. Assuming that the album recording will have more or less the same piano-centric arrangement, You and I will provide a necessary break from the high energy beats on the other tracks.

AMAZING! There seems to be such an eclectic variety of other artists from whom she drew inspiration!

It's hard to imagine how she's successfully combined all of their genres and merged them into one, cohesive sound, but we think that if anyone can do it, she can - and she HAS!

Paws up, bitches! Born This Way is coming!

YAY!

Thoughts?? U excited to hear The Horned GaGa's new tracks??
