Group founder Trent Reznor’s most recent project has been the soundtrack to director David Fincher’s latest film Gone Girl. Reznor also provided music to Fincher’s previous two works The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Speaking last month, he compared the score to a “curdled” version of relaxation music.

“[Fincher] said, ‘Think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlours. The way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything’s OK. And then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel’.”
