Nine Inch Nails unearthed their first set of songs since 2013's Hesitation Marks today, lead by the first single "Burning Bright (Field On Fire)." Trent said of the EP "It’s an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record that we needed to make." And he didn't lie.
Nine Inch Nails are back with a darkness, heaviness and intensity not seen/heard for some time. Stream the phenomenal "Burning Bright (Field On Fire)" here.
The physical edition of Not The Actual Events is available to pre-order (ships in the spring) but comes with an immediate download. The high resolution digital download is available now exclusively from NIN's store. The EP will be released through other digital platforms tomorrow (December 23rd).
You know what to do.
"Digital formats and streaming are great and certainly convenient, but the ideal way I’d hope a listener experience my music is to grab a great set of headphones, sit with the vinyl, drop the needle, hold the jacket in your hands looking at the artwork (with your fucking phone turned off) and go on a journey with me."
~ Trent Reznor
