Reznor worked with Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham, bassist Pino Palladino and Adrian Belew on the album, which he recorded largely in secret with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder before announcing the new LP in May. 

The band has been sharing singles off the album that include "Copy of A" and "Came Back Haunted," in addition to behind-the-scenes videos and photos as they gear up for a festival and arena tour kicking off in September.

Hesitation Marks will be available for purchase starting September 3rd. In the new issue of Rolling Stone, David Fricke gives the album four stars, calling it "one of [Reznor's] best."

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
