El nuevo disco de Nine Inch Nails, "Year Zero", viene en camino.

Producido por el mismo Trent Reznor en colaboración con Alan Moulder y
Atticus Ross, el disco estara en tiendas a mediados del mes de abril.

De acuerdo a diferentes medios que han logrado entrevistar a Trent Reznor en
las ultimas semanas, Year Zero es un album conceptual de dieciseis tracks
concebidos en medio de la gira With Teeth, que hasta la fecha tiene a NIN presentandose en Europa, e incluso algunas de las canciones del nuevo album
se han encontrado "abandonadas" en dispositivos USB que la banda ha sembrado
en los baños de los lugares en los que han tocado en ultimas fechas, como
Lisboa, Madrid y Barcelona.

De cualquier manera, algunas de esas canciones ya se pueden escuchar a
traves del myspace de la banda: www.myspace.com/nin

Para acompañar el lanzamiento del sencillo y del disco en si, Nine Inch
ha iniciado una campaña a través de ciertas paginas de internet, las
cuales tratan en comun el desastrozo estado del planeta en un futuro no muy
lejano, como:


En el transcurso del dia de ayer, personas allegadas a la banda, me
mailearon un link con un password, el cual me acceso al siguiente mensaje de
Trent Reznor, el cual comparto con ustedes:

A message from Trent:

This record began as an experiment with noise on a laptop in a bus on tour
daydream stuck with me and over time revealed itself to be much more. I
believe sometimes you have a choice in what inspiration you choose to follow
and other times you really don’t. This record is the latter. Once I tuned
into it, everything fell into place… as if it were meant to be. With a
framework established, the songs were very easy to write. Things started
happening in my "real" life that blurred the lines of what was fiction and
what wasn’t. The record turned out to be more than a just a record in scale,
as you will see over time.
Part one is year zero. Concept record. Sixteen tracks. All written and
performed by me, produced / programmed by me and Atticus Ross, mixed by Alan
Moulder, mastered by Brian "Big Bass" Gardner. Release date: April 17, 2007.
What’s it about? Well, it takes place about fifteen years in the future.
Things are not good. If you imagine a world where greed and power continue
to run their likely course, you’ll have an idea of the backdrop. The world
has reached the breaking point – politically, spiritually and ecologically.
Written from various perspectives of people in this world, "year zero"
examines various viewpoints set against an impending moment of truth. How
does it sound? You will hear for yourself soon enough, but given the point
of this document is to provide information…

This record is much more of a "sound collage" than recent efforts from me.
A lot of it was improvised.
It is very tedious describing your own music.
It’s not just music.
It’s probably too long, but it felt like the right thing to do to paint the
complete picture.
It will sound different after a few listens.
You can think about it and it will reveal more than you were expecting.
You can dance to a lot of it.
You can fuck to a lot of it (maybe all of it depending on what you’re into).

Y por último, el tracklist de Year Zero, a la venta el 17 de Abril:

"The Beginning of the End"
"The Good Soldier"
"Me, I’m Not"
"Capital G"
"My Violent Heart"
"The Warning"
