Reznor Delivers New Nine Inch Nails Single

Originally published in MTV on July 1, 1999

This week, fans finally get a taste of what Trent Reznor has been up to for the last five years as "The Day The World Went Away," the new Nine Inch Nails single, hits stores.

With the track, Reznor delivers a four-minute dirge that seems to support reports of a more sweeping, soundscape-oriented outing on the group's upcoming effort, "The Fragile."

Fans of Nine Inch Nails' industrial stomp of yore may be more enamored with the single's B-side, "Starf***ers, Inc."

Reznor is due to deliver the new Nine Inch Nails album to stores this fall, but "The Day The World Went Away" should arrive on Tuesday.
