From the nin.com news feed...

I was planning on taking some time off after the continual waves of touring that ended last fall and spend this year experimenting around with what would become How To Destroy Angels and some new NIN. Well, that plan didn't work out so well. David Fincher started inquiring about my interest in scoring his upcoming film, The Social Network. Yeah, the movie about the founding of Facebook. I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned. Atticus Ross and I have been on a creative roll so I asked him if he wanted to work on this with me and we signed on.

Months later, I'm happy to tell you we're nearing the completion of this and I couldn't be happier with how it's turned out. The level of excellence that David operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable.

As Atticus and I near the end of the scoring process, we're looking forward to the next phase - distilling the large amount of music we've written for this down to a satisfying record (or two). The film opens Oct 1 in the US with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that.

Speaking of the film... it's really fucking good. And dark!




Okay... now for the trailer...

I wondered why they bothered making a film out of this as well at first, but after I saw the trailer it does seem to be pretty interesting. Plus I liked Jesse Eisenberg in Zombieland. More work from Trent is always good so yes, overall I'm looking forward to this.

Welcome to a month ago. =P

But yeah, I'm not sure what to think about this. I watched the trailer and all I heard was some chick singing Radiohead's Creep, maybe Trent produced that...? Oh well, I'm sure he'll write some cool shit for it regardless of how good the movie is.

From what I've heard and seen of this movie, it doesn't really interest me. If I do end up seeing this it would probably only be to see Trent Reznor's work.

Oh don't mind me, just coughing. Don't click it or anything.

Sure is fucking dark for a Facebook movie. This movie is sure to be interesting.

It's by the Scala & Kolacny Brothers' Girls' Choir. They've done a lot of covers, including this one:

Is there gonna be angry rant about how Facebook isn't Google yet? I'm gonna see this movie just because of Mr. Reznor scoring it.

Trent Reznor
FREE 5-track EP from The Social Network score that Atticus Ross and I created, right here: http://www.nullco.com/TSN/

This is what Atticus and I have been working on for the last few months. We had a great time working with David Fincher on this and the film turned out excellent - something we're very proud of. It opens in theatres Oct 1 and you should check it out.

Musically, this all came out of our secret laboratory - electronic in basis, but mostly organic sounding. Lots of experiments and emphasis on sound fraying around the edges while focusing on the proper emotional tone for the various scenes.

Regarding the purchase options, sorry about the "clunkiness" of not offering the full record digital download pre-sale (and having to visit Amazon). My agenda was to be able to offer this for the lowest possible price and this was the best way to achieve that. Amazon has been a great partner with past projects and I appreciate your understanding.

- Trent Reznor, 9.16.10

The Social Network soundtrack will be released digitally on Tuesday September 28th with physical formats to follow in October. You can pre-order standard CD, Blu-ray (audio only 5.1 surround and high resolution stereo) and 2 disc 180g vinyl formats now. All preorders include an instant 5 song sampler download and a full digital album delivered by email on 9/28. Standalone digital will be available for purchase EXCLUSIVELY on Amazon MP3 at a promotional rate of $2.99 for a 48 hour period starting 12:01am PT on 9/28. Digital purchases will begin here 9/30 at 12:01am PT.

I just finished listening to the five-track sampler, and I'd be lying if I said it was anything but great. As I said previously, it's going to be a film I go see, if only to hear this beautiful music bringing the film to life. "Pieces From The Whole" is definitely the best track in the sampler.
