Trent Reznor has revealed his secret music streaming project in collaboration with Beats by Dre.
He also confirmed that there will be two brand new Nine Inch Nails songs on a forthcoming "Greatest Hits" release.
The project with Dr. Dre will be a streaming service called Daisy which intelligently helps listeners discover great music among its huge catalogue. It will launch in early 2013.
"[Spotify has] 16 million licensed pieces of music... but you're not stumbling into anything
," said Reznor. "What's missing is a system that adds a layer of intelligent curation.
"As great as it is to have all this information bombarding you, there's a real value in trusted filters. It's like having your own guy when you go into the record store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn't necessarily have encountered."
Reznor makes a fair point, but presumably he missed Spotify's big announcement last week where it was revamped to aid discovery in the ways Reznor mentions.
Meanwhile, he's been busy promoting a new EP from his side-project How To Destroy Angels, contributing to the new Queens Of The Stone Age album and writing a score for "Call Of Duty: Black Ops II".
Are you surprised to see Reznor collaborate with Dr. Dre? Will you be trying Daisy when it launches in a few months? Let us know in the comments.
