Trent Reznor says he listened to David Bowie’s ‘The Next Day’ nonstop during rehearsals for Nine Inch Nails’ latest tour

Trent Reznor is a big fan of David Bowie’s latest album, “The Next Day.” In fact, the frontman for Nine Inch Nails so enjoyed the album that he has penned a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter in which he gushes over the album and says that he listened to the release non-stop during rehearsals for Nine Inch Nails’ latest trek.

“It was a puzzle — it didn’t sound like how I thought it might sound,” he wrote in the column. “I thought maybe it was a bit conservative sonically. But over several months, it made its way into my playlist on countless bus rides; when I’m sitting alone to listen to music, I reach for ‘The Next Day.’”

Reznor went on to say Bowie is the musician that inspired him to want to create music. “To a kid growing up in rural Pennsylvania, out of reach of college radio and on the wrong side of the Internet — in isolation — to see this alien creep in, this larger-than-life character who was smart…he’s been a consistent reference point as somebody who is uncompromising,” he said. “He has found an audience yet challenges that audience and continues moving forward in a fearless way.”
