Remember when Trent Reznor confirmed that new Nine Inch Nails music was in the works? Yeah, well it seems like we’re gonna have to wait a little while, according to an article by The New Yorker. The first sampling of new music is apparently going to be on a “Best Of” compilation album that will feature two new tracks. Supposedly a new NIN album will follow sometime after that.
On top of that, Reznor fully explained what his collaboration with Beats By Dre is all about: music streaming. Currently called Daisy, the service “…uses mathematics to offer suggestions to the listener… [but also] would present choices based partly on suggestions made by connoisseurs, making it a platform in which the machine and the human would collide more intimately.” It is set to be released early next year.
Reznor also says that the difference between Daisy and Spotify is that, “…you’re not stumbling into anything. What’s missing is a service that adds a layer of intelligent curation.”
He finished describing Daisy as “…like having your own guy when you go into the record store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn’t necessarily have encountered.”
You know what? That sounds pretty interesting! However, I’m curious to know what kind of pricing model will be used to pay the artists whose music is streamed.
