Trent Reznor, Mogwai, Leonardo Di Caprio & Climate Change related stuff in one movie? Awesome! 😃

The most interesting thing about this is the collaboration with Mogwai. This type of thing was never a TR strong suit in the past (i.e. Tapeworm).

I finally downloaded Juno today and was just listening to the Gone Girl soundtrack when the Twitter alert came in. Setting the right mood is everything! ☺

I'm also very curious regarding the collaboration, of course. I always wanted to check out Mogwai and I am glad TR&AR are trying out new things.

The movie premiered today and the soundtrack will be released in October? What a nice surprise!

I am really looking forward to the sound of him collaborating outside of the usual suspects he's brushed shoulders with for so long. I've always felt Trent's at his best when he's being pushed into new spaces creatively, and hopefully just having completely different people working with him here will have a really positive impact. I definitely know I'm a lot more excited than I would be if it was another straight TR&AR score (as much as I enjoy them, I just want to hear something a bit more surprising again).

Also as someone who harps on climate change a lot it makes me really happy seeing him working on a project like this. Year Zero was my major "in" for NIN so I've got a real soft-spot for activist Trent.

Here is a little bit more information about the movie: http://www.ew.com/article/2016/09/08/before-the-flood-leonardo-dicaprio-clip-poster

Apparently it is a TV production that will have a limited run in cinemas.

Edit: Actually you can hear a glimpse of the score in the clip they have on that site! It sounds vaguely familiar... Like Trent and Atticus signature sound. ��

I'm interested in watching the documentary, too. Looks good.

That's just so tiring about the internet. Come on people, there is so much proof! But one cold winter in one country and everybody there will claim how it all is just a big lie... 😞

On another note, I'm curious if the soundtrack will get its own artwork again. I think the concept of the movie poster is a good idea, but it looks just so fake and full of photo shop. I hope that the album cover will be a bit more subtle.

Gustavo Santaolalla is also involved in this. He composed the scores for such films as Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Brokeback Mountain and more recently Netflix's Making a Murderer.

This is probably his best known piece, used in Michael Mann's The Insider and the first episode of HBO's Deadwood.

Santaolalla is an absolute genius, yes. Love love LOVE his work in Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Deadwood. Those are two of my favorite modern day movies and one of my favorite television shows of all time, no question.

I guess the big question now is...are we still going to see (hear) new NIN before year's end like Trent assured we would? If this comes out in October, that only leaves November and December for an NIN announcement.

Granted, this is also the same dude who announced the full-scale return of NIN on the eve of Welcome Oblivion, so I'm still hopeful..

I'm pretty excited about this. I'm a big fan of Mogwai, and they've always been fairly high on the list of people I've wanted Trent to work with. I'm not as familiar with Santaolalla's work, but I will work to rectify this in the next couple months.

I saw it this morning. Very compelling if you don't mind a bit of self-indulgence from DiCaprio, and of course the music is amazing. Mogwai did the guitar riff-based stuff I guess? Droney creepy pulsing from TR+AR, as you'd expect.

But then TR sings a song over the end credits. Brand new composition, mostly very intimate sounding solo voice (with a few delay effects) and treated piano. Sombre-sounding but with some hopefulness, lots of his usual lyrical phrases yet somehow feels more intimate in delivery than you'd expect from him as NIN. No mention of its title in the credits, but the phrase "I just need a minute to breathe" is repeated, mantra-like, at the end.

Did it specifically say nine inch nails anywhere? I'm curious if this is specific to this documentary or related to an upcoming album.

No, no NIN mention and it sounded nothing like NIN; probably the first ever original vocal composition released under TR's own name.

I could see Trent dropping the NIN, which is practically simply a stage name, and releasing music just as TR. NIN has too many standards attached to it, and Trent could be tired of trying to please fans.

Oh, snap! And that's also a vocal composition, credited to his given name; guess I forgot about it. Haha! This one is nowhere near as rockin' (more like a ballad-y version of 'We Fade Away' by HTDA) but I liked it. Come at me billpulsipher

Should a thread be opened in the Nine Inch Nails discussion? It seems so weird that someone announces they heard a new NIN/Trent Reznor song and nobody is talking about it.

Nobody has heard the new nin supposedly coming out this year or "dive and slam", but people sure talked about that a lot. I just find it odd that when we have confirmation of something new it's crickets, but there are conversations about single ambiguous tweets that go on for pages. Just saying.

Well, I'm not the ONLY one, as there were a handful of public screenings at TIFF — but I doubt there were lots of other NIN fans checking it out because little (if any) festival publicity promoted that TR&AR had scored it.

I'll just reiterate that I didn't notice any title or artist listed for the song specifically, just Reznor and Ross' names in the credits.

In the NIN discussion there'd just be people complaining how they'd prefer new NIN. But only groundbreaking stuff that should be really angry. I like it in here. It's quiet, but there isn't as much negativity involved. ☺

I'd be willing to bet this is a new NIN track. Even though it's been said the delivery is more intimate than what one might expect from NIN, with both the fact that Trent has said there will be new NIN in 2016 and the fact that he lets NIN evolve and pushes it forward, I think there is a very good chance this could even be a track from the next album that felt appropriate for the tone of the film.

I can vouch that people who live in Toronto, and surrounding areas, only listen to Drake, Bieber and The Weeknd. No locals at TIFF cared about Reznor.

Damn, discovering Santaolallo wrote *that* title theme is really scrumptious icing on a fucking good cake, comrades. The sound he gets out of those strings is skeletal and kinda skin-tingling. Fuck yeah. Mogwai are a perennial favorite, favorite band. Pal opened for them once and one Mogwai stayed out with us after the pubs and we went to Club Neo. No one was there, except for this old-school looking rivethead who guarded the dancefloor like an alpha goat. Another old pal, whose formative Goth of the Dead Can Dance/Cure variety, was delicately making way towards a girl that I could tell he thought was pretty, and Alpha Goat backed him down pretty good. He danced away like in a fluttery motion. Mogwai stayed at the bar chatting with the music pal. Great fucking show and night. Looking forward to this LP intently.

Lyrics = care about it significantly more now. Was going to pick it up of course, but before I wasn't greatly excited (mostly because I don't care about the movie, and I just fucking want new NIN and TF:DE). Just hope it's not only this one track with vocals.

Also, funny how he presented it with NOT NEW NIN at the beginning of the description.

I guess this is Before the Flood's equivalent to Is Your Love Strong Enough, right? ie., one song with vocals at the end of an otherwise instrumental affair. Looking forward to hearing the full thing, it sounds wonderful.

Sounds great. I got the goosebumps.
It has those elements from TGWTDT and Gone Girl but I think that's normal. Even so, it doesn't sounds like either.

I think this could stand for itself and I'm sure the soundtrack will be great. I'm curious how much from the Year Zero Trent Reznor will we get and how much from the daddy Trent Reznor. I believe both influences may play a very nice role in this. I'm not saying that it will sound like YZ but the idea of a fucked up planet isn't new in the Niniverse.

I am definitely interested in the movie and the score.

C'mon now.
These glockenspiel notes instantly remind of Dragon Tattoo score (What if We Could, Hidden in Snow etc).
The synth/bass/strings humming underneath is sonically very similar to some other tracks (don't even see the point of listing them, there are too many).

I don't mean any of this in any negative way, quite the opposite.
I also don't mean TRAR tracks all sound the same to me, they don't. I can instantly tell which score is on and even guess the title without looking with 90% accuracy (yes I don't know them all by heart, shame on me).
But if you try to deny the similarity, you're just wrong.

Also, if definitely not like DT or GG then... what? The Social Network? HTDA?

I'll probably order the vinyl soon - I have a vacation next week and can't afford to spend the money right now - but lame at using Firebrand for UK/Europe. They always seem to mess up orders.

Hearing "A Minute to Breathe" would be great, though. Cough.

I thought the song was just....okay....until the last two minutes popped in after the unexpected "na na na's" that everyone has been mentioning. Really dug that. Lyrically and structure wise it reminds me a lot of Lights in the Sky.

Overall, the track isn't anything remarkable but is worth checking out if anything for how the song ends...it's crazy how much Trent doing a refrain can instantly take you back to the Fragile era.

For some reason, I thought Mogwai and Trent would be working together on the music but this track list shows that's not true.

yeah, i'm pretty bummed about that. i thought there was actually going to be collaboration, rather than just shared album space. oh well. :(

also, mogwai's official site still hasn't been updated to indicate anything about their involvement with the score, which is weird.

If I change my mind, I can always wait a year and sell the vinyl for 4x what it's worth apparently. Looking forward to hearing the whole thing, even though there was no direct Mogwai cross-pollination with Trent and Atticus and Gustavo.

Also, I did not expect Linux command-line utility "youtube-dl" to extract also iTunes video, so then it was just "avconv" from m4v to wav and voila, here is an mp3 for my small player. :-) Don't think it would be OK to post here though... maybe PM if interested. (update: also FLAC is included, but original was of course MP4A so it's not really lossless, just exactly as in the video, and mp3 is lame --preset extreme)

I like the nah-nah-nahs. They seem a bit off, but I think the whole song sounds kind of off and that they did obviously on purpose. I'm not great in music theory but I believe there are some funny things going on regarding different time structures. To me all of that support the fragile nature of the vocals and more importantly the whole song itself. It seems like everything is breaking down and there is this really peaceful cry for help. I dig it a lot.

Lyrics simple..... song and melody/singing are good.... although kind of boring after 2:20 (when the full progression finishes it's first loop) ..but so awesome when the na na nas change up comes in until end.... wish the song had more variation/change ups.....I think the introduction of guitar or drums after 2:20 would have really added to it. but I didn't write it so...

I think song length could have been cut in half..while still retaining awesome change up at end.

overall good song... could have been edited down big time though...and more variations/instruments introduced as song progressed.... na na na na finisher to end is awesome.

I truly have no belief we'll ever see a TR&AR score on vinyl become such a collector's item again and here's why:

That was Trent's first full-fledged film score. Immediately it gains an added importance.

It was for one of the most lauded films of the year that many felt was robbed of Best Picture and is still talked about fondly as an emblematic film of the culture at the time. The other stuff they've done since has been popular and well-loved but not at that level and not as universally accessible.

That score was a perfect listening length and lent itself far more to being heard independent of the respective films; there's a good hour or so of the Dragon Tattoo score that absolutely feels like "film score music" and isn't half as strong in isolation.

The vinyl market was on the rise in 09 but still nowhere near what it is now and these days we're seeing that comic book collector thing happen -- people assuming everything is going to be valuable, so they buy extras of everything, and now they're not because everyone did that. Anyone who bought multiples of the Gone Girl score with that in mind pretty much wasted an extra 20-30 bucks on it.

The Social Network score won the Oscar. It was his first, it was a big deal, it was an Oscar for his first(!!!) film score and that's an historic aspect of it that other stuff doesn't have and won't have. Even if he wins another someday, it'll not be seen as big a deal.

In general aside from things only being released in their super-deluxe-shit-you-don't-need-edition form like Dragon Tattoo, I don't think any of these scores are going to ever be going for hundreds of dollars on vinyl again.

Also as far as the new song goes: I think it's great to hear Trent letting himself sing in a different style, I think this not being dubbed a NIN track afforded him a lot of mental freedom from those expectations and constraints. It's very far away from anything we've come to expect come from his mouth, and I like that. I've been waiting to be caught off guard or surprised by the sound of something he's done for years now, and this did it. I would be totally down for a TR-AR album with vocals if this is the kind of stuff we'd be getting out of it.

I feel there is also something from "Right where it belongs"... And I find myself subconsiously changing the lyrics to "I need, a reason to breathe" or "a minute to sleep" etc, what's wrong with me? :-)

Also, true story - I was shopping now and one small children was singing that random baby babbling to itself, and I swear it once hit part from the "naah naah naah" perfectly! :-D

Btw, if my youtube-dl is correct, the iTunes version has better audio (MP4a aprox. 256 kbps, 48 kHz) than YouTube (MP4a 128 kbps 44.1 kHz, but video is 1980x1080 there).

The new track is alright. Can't imagine this is gonna be a popular opinion but I'm not keen on the vocals. Especially the na-na's
I'm not feeling it at all. I listened 5 or 6 times in a row hoping it would grow on me. Oh well.

Listened to it quite a lot know. The na-na's are my absolute favorite part of the song. I get goosebumps from the sudden transition from "goodbye" to the first na-na's. That's pure emotion.

Other than that I also love the surprise sax, the Reptile appregio and the kind of random bass line right at the end.

If you think he's actually mumbling in this track, you need your hearing checked. Then again, you seem to think he should be screaming in this track, so what do you know?

Wondering if this documentary will be in some cinema nearby...? I'd go.

Anyway, I seem to like it more and more. For example, the first time I was a bit surprised by the "naahs", but now they fit perfectly. :-) Also, it is somewhat hard to switch playing in my head from the first motif to final two minutes, isn't there some change in scale? And I think maybe it is dedicated to children, "look you in the eyes" embarassed by the damage we're leaving behind...

I said he should scream more in general. Not for this song....If you arent objective enough (which you're not) to realize TR has been using the same vocal style for the last 9 years (mumbling or high pitch falsetto) there is no way of reasoning with you..Its common knowledge he's become a one trick pony..for god sake they even made a viral video about it (this is a trent reznor song) He has changed his vocal style starting with YZ...its either mumbling or high pitch falsetto..thats not opinion. its fact

It's a fact that you don't know what you're talking about. Let's review the dictionary definition of "mumble", shall we?


mumble

verb (used without object), mumbled, mumbling.
1.
to speak in a low indistinct manner, almost to an unintelligible extent; mutter.

See that 'u' word in there? "Unintelligible"? Yeah, that doesn't describe Trent's vocal style in the track AT ALL (or most of the tracks he's made since Year Zero). I could hear him and understand him just fine, as could most of the people who have posted in this thread it seems. So, with that said, tell us, O Master Of Objectivity, where is all this mumbling you're mumbling about?

Singing softly isn't mumbling. You want to hear mumbling? Go listen to a Thom Yorke song and THEN tell me that Trent is mumbling his lyrics.

And if he's such a "one trick pony" now, why in the fuck are you still listening to new music from him?

I've never really interacted with you here yet but all I got from your last few posts are: Trent is repeating himself with vocal styles; but Trent should not be screaming here; vocals since Year Zero have been bland and same-sounding.

It just seems you don't know what you want or just won't be happy with anything besides angry industrial rock music. I actually think his singing and screaming before The Fragile was same-sounding. On TF, WT, YZ, and HM, he makes many new, interesting, almost theatrical vocal decisions. I can provide specific examples if you'd like, and then it will just be a matter of different definitions.

I'd be just as happy with an album full of ballads and Still sounding songs....The Rez' vocal style post 2007 generally consists of mumbling or singing in a high pitch voice..thats just the way it is..people can argue my opinion all they want, but I'm not the first person to bring this up.

The song reminds me of RWIB, too. It's kind of the same concept, isn't it? Melodramatic piano playing while mourning stuff that's going on in the/his world accompanied by softly sung lyrics.

I can't help being put off by singing capabilities vs. self seriousness levels in the lyrics that are on display here (again). It's all a bit too on the nose for me, too. Sad piano, sad voice, sad na-na-na want me to feel sad. LITS was miles above this song, I feel.

I'm also not sure, how to judge the fact he's once again trying to sing a song like this himself. Didn't they find a better singer? Is it a bold move that he keeps pushing himself? Or does it stem from a need for recognition as the frontman?

WorzelG
10-09-2016, 11:00 AM
^^^what's wrong with wanting to have need of recognition as a frontman in a frontman???

Also doesn't htda suggest he's OK not being a frontman all the time.

Anyway I find false humility really annoying.

About the vocals, I think the shakiness and imperfection is the point and reflects the shaky ground humanity stands on with regards to climate change, or something! I think this song can safely be ruled out when it comes to live performances though

The occasional scientology remarks about him kill me, because he is one of the nicest guys I've ever met – not one of the nicest musicians, one of the nicest people. Possibly the single biggest geek-out moment of my life was when I asked him about Ken Andrews recording NIN's The Slip rehearsals. I'll never forget that. As a player and producer, I happen to love his work. His twitter account has always expressed pure pride in his time with NIN, which I always find tremendously heartening.

On topic, I'm really into the new song. The length and tracklist of the album are getting me even more excited.

I have a good feeling about this soundtrack. Curious about the movie itself, too!

'A Minute to Breathe' is an amazing track. I've given it all my attention, eyes shut and headphones on. Wow, the ending is so very delicate and peaceful. I love all the layers.

This is very satisfying.


I remember when 'Earth Song' was released, MJ's voice is very delicate in this song too (some parts). It seemed like everybody stopped what they were doing for a few minutes and stared into their TVs to see what was happening outside. This too is an amazing one. As a child I almost believed that this one video would change the world. What a fucking disaster we are, we as people are incapable of making the changes necessary to better the world. The leaders are fucking us over.

Very excited for tomorrow. Thought there'd be more of a buzz here to be honest! Could that be partly due to the nature of releasing this (no physical except vinyl, not going to be in shops etc).

Liked that article that Worzel G posted ^^ particularly, the 'try to cover Mogwai's song before they'd finished it' bit...can just imagine Mogwai when they received the file - 'cheeky bastards'!!

BTW have tried the Tidal HiFi that someone mentioned earlier - admittedly so far only on headphones, but can't say I'm noticing too much difference between the sound quality and that of a CD to be honest. Will defo be giving BTF a go on that and Spotify tomorrow to see if there's much difference.

I listened to this on Apple Music last night (I have a subscription to supplement some of the stuff not available on Spotify like this soundtrack) and liked it enough that I wanted to "purchase it." I had to spend 12.70 (after already spending 1.99 on A Minute to Breathe) to get this from iTunes (which I hate). They could at least give some information about if or when other options would be available. Now I will have to buy this again to get lossless if they make it available. I feel like I am forced to choose an expensive vinyl option I don't want or iTunes which I also don't want until it become available at some point. It is also irritating that this isn't on Spotify which is my preferred streaming medium. Sorry, I am just tired of purchasing the same music multiple times.

I share your frustration. Indication is that it will turn up on Spotify, because A Minute To Breathe did, but much like A Minute To Breathe probably a day or two after it's exclusive release on the Apple platform, to presumably try and hook people into buying it outright rather than streaming it. Too little information is being provided, and too late in the day. Par for the course though, it seems, these days.

For anyone who ordered the vinyl on the UK Bandstores site, I have just been told that "you will be receiving the full download later on today" by their support person.

Some of the sounds in Before The Flood remind me a lot of the Fragile era, I feel a "Leaving Hope" vibe throughout the whole soundtrack.

Everybody who ordered the vinyl received their link for the full sountrack ? I didn't...
And I hope it will be in Lossless format, don't remember I had to choose when I bought the vinyl but still "A Minute to Breathe" was an MP3 version...

No, I haven't got a d/l email either which is annoying!!!

I created the ninwiki pages for all the relevant TRAR tracks if anyone wants to contribute:

http://www.nin.wiki/Before_The_Flood_Soundtrack

Also need to add the bpms:

http://www.nin.wiki/List_Of_BPM_Rates#Before_The_Flood_Soundtrack

I can't modify the wiki, and not to be requesting anything, but the page for Trent and Atticus Songs is out-of-date (even Juno isn't there):

The first track is just bananas, man. It's unbelievable how good it is. Dude, something like this with vocals on a new NIN album and I will loose my shit.

Whoa, how did I miss this dropping?! So, stay away from digital purchases at NIN.com right now, or what?

Almost bought this immediately, but I've taken a minute to breathe and now I'm going to wait and see what existing pre-orderers in the UK get in terms of downloads.

The store.nin.com (US) store wanted to charge $ 69.85 shipping on top of $45 for the product! which is a $1 = £1 exchange rate anyway :/

This is exactly the issue. I am a huge fan and I am excited. I couldn't wait a day or week or month... I feel like I was forced to purchase from iTunes and as a result will be forced to buy a second copy of the same thing... which happens too often (I had to buy HM from iTunes for the exclusive and this was only offered as an "album only" purchase for example). If this was new nin I would have probably pre-ordered the vinyl no questions, but for a soundtrack that I will probably not listen to that regularly it seems like too much. Even the albums I love I rarely listen to the vinyl...
