REZNORWATCH: A FREE DOWNLOAD OF A NEW NINE INCH NAILS SONG, AND HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS GET A RELEASE DATE

40

Well, clearly, Trent Reznor has been using all the downtime from not touring productively. Not only have How to Destroy Angels, his new project, announced a July 6 release date for their six-song debut EP, but he’s now written, recorded, and released his first Nine Inch Nails track of the post-live show era. It’s a theme for the upcoming movie Tetsuo: The Bullet Man, the latest entry in director Shinya Tsukamoto’s Tetsuo series.

I’ve been hearing about the Tetsuo movies for years, but I’ve never actually seen one, so, uh, geek fail, I guess. But I know that this latest movie is the first to be filmed in English, and that it got a good reception at the Venice Film Festival last year (before Reznor had actually delivered his contribution) and the Tribeca Film Festival this year (after Reznor had delivered his contribution), so take that for what it’s worth. In any case, the NIN track is – do I really have to say it? – awesome. It’s instrumental, and for large chunks of it my mother would probably argue that “it’s just noise,” and it would be hard to argue with her – if this was the sound of my alarm clock, I’d never hit the “snooze” button again. But it’s epic; awesomely, epicly epic, in fact. You can listen to it below, or just download it from Some Kind of Awesome.

And I’ve put the trailer for after the jump. It certainly looks like Reznor-appropriate.
