As tipped here earlier this week, Nine Inch Nails' "Year Zero" has been remixed track-by-track for "Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D," due Nov. 20 via Interscope. Among the remixers are New Order's Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert, the Faint, Bill Laswell, Ladytron, Fennesz and Saul Williams, among others.
The remix of "My Violent Heart" was made by a fan, under the moniker Pirate Robot Midget. "Remix records can be disposable garbage (of which I myself have been guilty of to some extent) but this collection feels good to me," Reznor writes on NIN.com. "I reached out to heroes, friends and strangers. I encouraged those I approached to do anything and insert themselves as much as possible into the track."
"Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D" will be available in a variety of formats: digital download, a triple-vinyl set and a CD/DVD-ROM. The latter will feature the multi-track files for all the tracks on the album that fans can manipulate via programs such as Garageband or Ableton Live.
As of Oct. 7, Reznor is free of his Interscope contract is now focusing on the follow-up to "Year Zero."
