We know that Trent Reznor is a busy guy, especially with all sorts of new musical collaborations. As it turns out, though, the Nine Inch Nails mastermind has also been busy creating his own streaming service.
During a feature interview with The New Yorker, Reznor revealed that he’s been working with Beats Electronics (aka Beats By Dr. Dre) on a new music streaming service. Tentatively being dubbed Daisy, Reznor is reportedly aiming to make the service more “personable” and better exposes users to more new forms of music. When comparing his service to Spotify, Reznor claimed “Here’s sixteen million licensed pieces of music,’ they’ve said, but you’re not stumbling into anything. What’s missing is a service that adds a layer of intelligent curation.”
But that’s not all Reznor revealed during the interview. While we know that new Nine Inch Nails material has been in the works, Reznor revealed that Interscope Records is preparing to release a “best of” compilation for tentatively 2014. While it’s unclear how involved he’ll be with the release, Reznor did say that two new NIN songs would appear on the compilation. It’s unclear, though, as to when (or how) an album completely made of new material will be released.
