Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs have just released a video (directed by David Fincher) of a hard-rocking/industrial edged version of ‘Immigrant Song’ by my favorite band of all time…Led Zeppelin. It’s from the soundtrack for the film Girl With The Dragon Tattoo now available on iTunes. The CD comes out later this month.
This makes it the second time Trent Reznor (with his partner Atticus Ross) have worked with Fincher. Reznor and Ross brought home an Oscar for the soundtrack to The Social Network last year, which was directed by Fincher as well. Awesome CD too!
It’s not like Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, and Stephin Perkins along with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek haven’t been keeping themselves busy.
I’m not going to go into detail about the particulars of this CD. Basically if you’re a fan of Jane’s Addiction you will also like this CD. It does not disappoint. If you want a huge review I suggest you check out this one in pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15910-janes-addiction/ (Though I don’t agree with everything that reviewer says about this disc.) I am a huge fan of the band…but I don’t just follow a band blindly. They need to earn my respect and this does. Jane’s Addiction have done it again.
I was lucky to get the bonus edition which includes a second 11 track CD of a live performance from the 2011 Vive Latino Festival in Mexico City. Perry’s between-song banter is hilarious!
Jane’s Addiction is the Led Zeppelin of our generation.
