Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor drops eerie surprise single Juno
Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor today revealed “Juno”, a surprise single with longtime collaborator Atticus Ross. The song was recorded to celebrate NASA’s Juno Mission, which is due to arrive in the orbit of Jupiter on July 4. “Juno” features NASA recordings of Jupiter’s eerie electromagnetic voices.
Juno single references soundtrack work by Trent Reznor and Atticus
Reznor and Atticus are known for their award-winning work writing soundtracks for The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The iTunes release describes “Juno” as:
“deeply cinematic—from its feverish atmospherics to its chains of glassy melody to its haunting textures, which sound like the surface of some distant planet must feel.”
The single release is the first taste of new music from Reznor since his contribution to the Gone Girl soundtrack in 2014.
Nine Inch Nails return in 2016
New NIN coming in 2016. Other stuff, too.

Nine Inch Nails are scheduled to return in 2016 with a new release, which Reznor hinted at on Twitter last December. The band’s last full-length was 2013’s Hesitation Marks.
The Juno mission began in 2011 and will see the orbiter pass closer to the gas giant than any previous spacecraft. NASA intend to study the planet’s atmosphere, gravity, magnetic field and the origins of the planet’s formation.
