Watch Nine Inch Nails’ New Music Video, Directed By David Lynch
A new music video for the new Nine Inch Nails single, “Came Back Haunted,” has dropped. The video features legendary director, David Lynch, at the helm. It also comes with an epilepsy warning that is not to be taken lightly.
Anyone familiar with the surreal tendencies of director David Lynch, known for such cult classics as Blue Velvet and Mulholland Dr., won’t be surprised to find the video especially unusual.
Flickering frames and nightmarish imagery are interspersed with blurry footage of Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails’ front man.
The single, “Came Back Haunted,” was released in the first week of June, part of the iconic rock act’s return after a four year hiatus. The single comes from a new Nine Inch Nails album, Hesitation Marks, set to release September 3 on Columbia Records.
The new single is being hailed as a return to form by some fans. Featuring a distorted guitar riff, dark, moody lyrics, and an industrial-inspired back beat, “Came Back Haunted” has more in common with Nine Inch Nails’ releases from the 90s than their recent offerings.
The more recent released from Nine Inch Nails have included Year Zero and Ghosts, which were a major departure from the band’s established sound. Some fans who were disappointed with the act’s change in sound will likely find satisfaction with the new single.
The new music video marks a reunion between David Lynch and Trent Reznor for the first time in over half a decade. Lynch’s 1997 film, Lost Highway, had a soundtrack assembled by and featuring Trent Reznor.
Trent Reznor has become known in the years during Nine Inch Nails’ four year hiatus for his film soundtrack work. He won an Academy Award for his work on The Social Network in 2010.
