Nine Inch Nails hou ons op ons tone deur nog ‘n song vanaf hulle opkomende album Hesitation Marks af te release. “Copy of A” is in true Nine Inch Nails form het hulle die song beskikbaar gemaak vir download for free vanaf Amazon. Die is ‘n sterk electro track met baie introspective lirieke. Trent Reznor beskryf die gevoel van die nuwe album as volg:
‘Downward Spiral’ felt like I had an unending bottomless pit of rage and self-loathing inside me and I had to somehow challenge something or I’d explode. I thought I could get through by putting everything into my music, standing in front of an audience and screaming emotions at them from my guts … but after a while it didn’t sustain itself, and other things took over – drugs and alcohol. And I’m happy that I don’t feel that way any more. I’ve learned to recognize, a lot of it forced through the process of recovery, that I’m wired wrong in certain ways, the chemical balance of my brain is off in terms of depression a little bit. This record was written as the other side of that journey. The despair and loneliness and rage and isolation and the not-fitting-in aspect that still is in me, but I can express that in a way that feels more appropriate to who I am now. And often that rage is quieter.
