Trent Reznor & Karen O - "Immigrant Song"

Hot on the heels of Trent Reznor discussing in an interview that the full length debut from How To Destroy Angels is being mixed as we speak, and that 2012 may - MAY - hold the promise of something new from Nine Inch Nails, comes a video to match one of two Reznor-produced covers. (The other is U2's "Zoo Station," recorded for a tribute marking the 20th anniversary of that band's classic Achtung Baby.)

I wasn't sure about Reznor and Karen O, with production help from Atticus Ross, covering the Led Zeppelin classic "Immigrant Song," but it's grown on me a lot. The noise, her voice, the cold electro-ness of the whole thing. I want to suffocate in it. That's at least a little bit because their version of the song sounds like the soundtrack to a movie murder collage, but whatever. I'm sure Karen O would make it a fun way to day.

Instead, this somewhat frightening video, directed by David Fincher to open The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, his new movie that opens next week, will have to do. Good thing it gets better with multiple plays - just like the song itself.
