As predicted over a month ago, the new track from Nine Inch Nails would be dropping on June 6th. Depending on which part of the world you’re in, you just got to open your Christmas present early, as Came Back Haunted can be listened to right now.
Soon after the announcement that their forthcoming LP is titled Hesitation Marks, the brand new song appeared online. Early reports indicated a return to the band’s early sound – the wobbling synth and beat certainly adding to that feel, but it’s also reminiscent of Year Zero in its shifting atmospheres from verse to chorus. Listen to Came Back Haunted in its (now-official) stream below:
Expect Nine Inch Nails’ Hesitation Marks to drop on September 3rd, with more details on the record to follow “soon”. Meanwhile, be sure to check out our recent interview with former NIN drummer Jerome Dillon here.
