A long-in-the-works Nine Inch Nails side project, Tapeworm, is expected to release its first album in the fall. The group features NIN's Trent Reznor, Charlie Clouser and Danny Lohne, along with various vocalists. A Perfect Circle and Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan recorded vocals for a track called "Vacant," which A Perfect Circle has frequently played at their gigs during the past year. Reznor, meanwhile, is wrapping up work on a DVD documenting NIN's Fragility Tour and has been working up new NIN tracks in his New Orleans studio with The Fragile producer Alan Moulder.

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.”
