Trent Reznor Gives Fans A Sneak Peak At New Album
(9/15/98, 6 p.m. PDT) - With his protégé Marilyn
Manson seemingly bigger than ever, Nine Inch Nails
mastermind Trent Reznor has been finishing his new album
and is preparing to step back into the limelight.
According to the Nine Inch Nails website (www.nineinchnails.net), the next NIN
album is due in February and features a guest appearance by former King
Crimson/ David Bowie guitarist Adrian Belew, among others.
Fans got a sneak preview of the new NIN album on Sept. 10, when Interscope
took out a 30-second commercial promoting the forthcoming release during the
telecast of the MTV Video Music Awards. For those fans that missed the
commercial, have no fear: The seemslikesalvation news forum on the NIN site is
offering free downloads of the commercial, which contains the new song
"Slipping," in the MP3 audio format and in RealVideo and Quicktime video. The
clip features a flickering NIN logo and a snippet of "Slipping." Before the clip
ends, the word "ninetynine" (likely a reference to the album's 1999 release date)
and the Nothing Records logo appear.
Belew recently spoke about the sessions in a chat at TalkCity. "Trent Reznor
was working on 40 different tracks divided into two categories, one of which he
typified as being NIN material, the other of which he referred to as his 'Tom
Waits' album," Belew said. "I played feverish guitar on more tracks than I can
remember as well as string bass, cello, mandolin and lap steel, while I played
lengthy, hairy solos. There were times when Trent operated my foot pedals,
changing my sounds."
