The day all you Trent Reznor fanboys and girls has arrived – today marks the first time anyone outside of Reznor’s inner circle gets to hear something from Hesitation Marks, the forthcoming eighth studio album from Nine Inch Nails. It’s called ‘Came Back Haunted’ and it’s right after the jump.
The track has a solid electronic base to it, which doesn’t deviate too far from the pattern set by The Slip, but a few of the loops and beat patterns reminded us of With Teeth-era NIN. Neither of which is necessarily a bad thing, mind you. At this stage we’ve got no idea if this track is a fair approximation of what the entire album will sound like (because it’s not as if any NIN record can ever be summed up by just one of its tracks), but based on this early taste, we’re quietly positive about Hesitation Marks. Bring on September.
