Kinda surprised there isn't a thread on this already. (If there is a thread, just close this and call me a dumb asshole.)

Trent Reznor has revealed details of a new music streaming service he has conceived with Dr Dre. The Nine Inch Nails leader and the hip-hop star are collaborating on Daisy, to be established as a rival to Spotify.

Daisy is due to launch in mid-2013, according to Billboard, and is being developed by Dre's successful headphones company, Beats by Dre. Its USP over other streaming services is to be its use of human expertise – Reznor believes existing music services rely too much on computerised recommendations and there aren't enough human beings advising users what music to buy.

"There's a real value in trusted filters," he recently told the New Yorker. "It's 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."

Services such as Spotify, which has 20m users in 17 countries, offer "millions [of] pieces of music … but you're not stumbling into anything," Reznor said. "What's missing is a service that adds a layer of intelligent curation." This new service, codenamed Daisy, will mix computerised tips with recommendations from "connoisseurs", with the intention of "making it a platform in which the machine and the human would collide more intimately".

In addition to discussing Daisy, Reznor confirmed that he is planning to record new music as Nine Inch Nails. The 47-year-old hopes to contribute two original songs to a 2014 greatest hits compilation, with the band's eighth studio album to follow.
