Nine Inch Nails has drafted Photek and DFA to remix tracks from the group’s upcoming album, “With Teeth,” due May 3 via Interscope. Photek has remixed first single “The Hand That Feeds,” while it is unknown what tracks DFA has tackled.
“I met Rupert [Parkes of Photek] during the mixing of ‘With Teeth.’ I’ve always loved his work and [he] was the first person I thought of when the top of remixing came up,” NIN’s Trent Reznor wrote on the band’s official Web site. He added that DFA is “doing the most interesting production work out there, in my opinion.”
Reznor also revealed that “With Teeth” will be available as both a regular CD and a DualDisc, the latter of which will feature “higher resolution stereo mixes as well as surround mixes I was involved in.” The video for “The Hand That Feeds” will also be included.
“As far as the packaging, we’re doing something that feels right to me but deviates from the norm,” Reznor said. “I have always thought the format of the CD effectively put an end to album artwork. [So] we designed something that feels in touch with how people experience music in 2005. We will be opening ourselves up for criticism here but I assure you when you see the big picture, it will all make sense.”
With NIN about to start a small venue tour tonight (March 23) in Fresno, Calif., Reznor promised fans shut out for tickets that the band would return in the fall for shows in bigger buildings.
