New Episode Of Netflix’s “Song Exploder” Will Focus On Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt”

New episodes of Netflix’s “Song Exploder” are expected to be released on December 15 and one of them will focus on Nine Inch Nails‘ “Hurt.” That track is from the band’s 1994 album “The Downward Spiral“ and it was famously covered by Johnny Cash in 2002.

Executive producer Hrishikesh Hirway commented:

“I first interviewed Trent Reznor for a Nine Inch Nails episode of the podcast back in 2017, and afterwards, as I was packing up my microphone and laptop, he asked me, ‘Have you ever thought about making this into a TV show?’ It was just a glimmer of an idea back then.

I’m so excited that it’s come to life, and I get to share four more episodes of the series with these beloved artists. They’re all so different from one another in terms of sound and background, and I can’t wait for people to see and hear their stories, and the unique path they each took to create these songs.”

In addition to the “Hurt” episode, “Song Exploder” will also have new episodes focusing on Dua Lipa’s “Love Again,” The Killers’ “When You Were Young,” and Natalia Lafourcade’s “Hasta La Raíz.”

Nine Inch Nails Had A Fall Tour Booked But Had To Cancel Due To The Coronavirus Pandemic

Trent Reznor has shared an update on Nine Inch Nails’ current plans, while also revealing that the band were forced to cancel their unannounced fall tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The group are hoping to return to the road in 2021.

Reznor said the following:

“I was just reminded today marks the two year anniversary of when we made you show up in person for the ‘Cold and Black and Infinite tour‘. Strange to think about with the world the way it is now. I look forward to the day we can once again safely be in the same space and share the experience of screaming at the top of our lungs at each other.

Speaking of which, I suppose I can let you know we HAD a tour booked this fall that continued and expanded Cold and Black and Infinite. Jehnny Beth was coming along with us. We were excited. I’m bumming myself out right now.

The what-could-have-been dates are below and we had some merch for that tour in production that we’re putting in the store with all of NIN’s profits going to local food banks in the cities we were going to play. http://smarturl.it/NINOnlineStore

The current plan is to finish up some scoring projects, work on my limited patience skills, deep dive into new NIN material, and hopefully be playing music live for you in 2021. In the meantime… listen to Jehnny’s record (comes out June 11), continue to listen to Bowie, and don’t be too hard on yourself.

The band commented:

“Friends- weird times indeed…

As the news seems to turn ever more grim by the hour, we’ve found ourselves vacillating wildly between feeling like there may be hope at times to utter despair — often changing minute to minute. Although each of us define ourselves as antisocial-types who prefer being on our own, this situation has really made us appreciate the power and need for connection.

Music — whether listening to it, thinking about it or creating it — has always been the thing that helped us get through anything — good or bad. With that in mind, we decided to burn the midnight oil and complete these new ‘Ghosts’ records as a means of staying somewhat sane.

‘Ghosts V: Together’ is for when things seem like it might all be okay, and ‘Ghosts VI: Locusts’… well, you’ll figure it out.

It made us feel better to make these and it feels good to share them. Music has always had a way of making us feel a little less alone in the world… and hopefully it does for you, too. Remember, everyone is in this thing together and this too shall pass.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Be smart and safe and take care of each other.

With love, Trent & Atticus”

Nine Inch Nails May Collaborate With Other Artists On Their Next Release

During an interview with Revolver, Trent Reznor revealed that he is hoping to collaborate with other artists on Nine Inch Nails’ next release. He said the following about that:

“We’re talking about doing some shows next year, maybe. Probably in the last half of the year. We have a template for the next Nine Inch Nails thing we want to do… I’ll give it away: collaboration. We’ve got a list of people we like. And we thought, kind of playing on the newfound spirit of collaboration that scoring has forced us into, seeing what happens when we mix our DNA with some other people, with a no pressure environment. Let’s see what happens. If something good happens, then maybe the world can hear it. But if it doesn’t, we put it in the pile with the other…”
