Nine Inch Nails have unveiled ‘Burning Bright (Field on Fire)’, the first track to be taken from a new EP.
Streaming below, it’s a harsh, feedback-laced preview of ‘Not the Actual Events’, which comes out this Friday (23rd December).
The EP is being sold as a “digital + physical component.” According to a description, “the intention of this record is for it to exist in the physical world, just like you.”
For the new EP - Nine Inch Nails’ first release since 2013’s ‘Hesitation Marks’ - Trent Reznor worked alongside Atticus Ross, his go-to guy for recent movie soundtracks and a newly dubbed “official bandmate”.
