In a new interview with the New Yorker, Trent Reznor revealed more info on his new partnership with Dr Dre - he told the magazine the two are working on a streaming music service called Daisy, which will offer the user musical suggestions combining algorithims (much like Pandora already uses), BUT also utilizes the human element. Reznor told the New Yorker Daisy will be a much better alternative to Spotify:

"Here's sixteen million licensed pieces of music,’ they’ve said, but you’re not stumbling into anything. What's missing is a service that adds a layer of intelligent curation"

Reznor also told the New Yorker that he'll be putting out a NIN greatest hits collection in 2014 which will include new material.

The full interview with Trent Reznor is available to New Yorker subscribers here. For those who aren't subscribers, Pitchfork has some other quotes from the piece here.

Meanwhile, the Quietus also published an interview with Trent Reznor yesterday. He talked mostly about his new project How To Destroy Angels, but briefly discussed his quest to try new things, even if they don't always work out:

"I've beat myself up over the years and I need to try new things, I need to push myself, I need to break the machine, I need to step away from things that feel comfortable to me, and I think I'm still deep in the process of trying that...the thing with [Dr.] Dre will reveal itself pretty soon, it's not a physical product, it's a platform that feels like it - it was a real challenge to come up with that. Will it work? It may, it may not. But it's something that's a puzzle for me to solve, in and of itself challenging, and it's utilising some skills I have in an unfamiliar and unsafe half of my safety zone kind of way, and it's been interesting. I tried writing a TV show for HBO and it failed, but we tried!"

How To Destroy Angels release An Omen ep last month. Deadmau5 recently remixed the track "Ice Age" (the remix is superior to the ep version, IMO). Check out the remix below:
