Nine Inch Nails’ brand new song

I’m sure by now, many of you have already listened to Nine Inch Nail’s new single Came Back Haunted. If you haven’t, it’s time to listen. If you have, time to listen to it again. The band threw fans into a happy frenzy by announcing ninth album Hesitation Marks, which is set to drop on September 3. It’s been a long 5 years since their last release and subsequent announcement of hiatus. In that interim, we’ve seen members of NIN dabble in all sorts of projects, some of them garnering major awards and much success. Trent Reznor has proven himself to be a great soundtrack composer for Hollywood motion pictures. How To Destroy Angels has done some pretty amazing things, particularly live. I guess they decided it was time to end that hiatus, despite still having much going on elsewhere.

Came Back Haunted is a fitting return. Just listen to the lyrics. The track harkens back to earlier NIN. It also fits right in with the EDM scheme of themes these days, since it’s very much an electro funk song. I also can’t help noticing how similar the production sounds to some of How To Destroy Angel’s material. Came Back Haunted is dark, creepy, and so wonderfully NIN. I’ve already listened to it many times, today.
