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”.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bleachers, The Linda Lindas and loads more are set to play the Chicago festival this year.
It’s their first UK headline shows in four years.
“It’s fucking Nine Inch Nails. That speaks for itself. You don’t need a clever quote to encapsulate it.”
The disorientating black and white clip was filmed during their Cold and Black and Infinite North American tour.
