Trent Reznor’s post–Nine Inch Nails band, How To Destroy Angels, will release a new EP titled An omen_ on November 11th. It’s the second release by the group, which features Reznor along with his wife, Mariqueen Maandig, as well as Rob Sheridan and Atticus Ross, his collaborator on several late-period NIN projects and the Academy Award–winning The Social Network score.
“Keep It Together” starts off slowly, with the emphasis on Maandig’s vocals and eerie electronic pulses, but as it moves along it shifts into a duet with Reznor. It’s not a world away from NIN, but the collaborative spirit, presence of female vocals, and the absence of rock elements are notable differences from the old stuff.
