Nine Inch Nails is releasing new music in 2014. Frontman Trent Reznor told The New Yorker that the band will be recording a new album soon and also putting together a greatest hits compilation that will contain two new songs. He also gave some details about a music-streaming service project that he is developing with Dr. Dre‘s Beats By Dre.
In July, Reznor told Rolling Stone that he was working on new Nine Inch Nails material. Now, the frontman has confirmed that 2014 will be the year we get to hear such new music. But before the new album, Interscope Records will release an edition of the band’s greatest hits, to which Reznor “intends to contribute” two new songs. After that’s done, he plans to write more music for a new record.
Reznor also talked about his new music-streaming service, which he has been working on with Beats Electronics for the past few months. The service is currently known as Daisy and is intended to launch in early 2013. The site is being described as a “second generation of Spotify and Pandora.” Reznor described Spodify as a site where you’ve got sixteen million licensed pieces of music, but you’re not stumbling into anything. Daisy will be smarter than that.
“What’s missing is a service that adds a layer of intelligent curation. Think of how many emotional ties you have with songs from your past.”
Daisy will offer suggestions from algorithms as well as suggestions from “people who have thought about what a good playlist is for driving through Memphis” or something like that.
