“I have no idea what the last part of this will be. I know lyrically where it goes, but I don’t know what it’s going to sound like yet.”


Speaking to Beats 1’s Zane Lowe back in July, Reznor revealed that the band had yet to arrive at a sound for the series’ final EP.

“I’ll tell you the blueprint of this suite of records has been starting with the kind of script – the lyrical construct, the world that they sit in,” Reznor explained. “And then, really following inspiration in the studio to find out musically kind of feels inspiring at that time. When we did ‘Not the Actual Events,’ we were really seduced by the violence of it. The kind of throwing ‘Hesitation Marks’ out the window and being unafraid to explore approaches we have in the past with the kind of, you know, punch in the face feel to it.

“And I think that the length of a five-song EP felt like the right length for that, you know? And to repeat that isn’t as exciting anymore,” he continued. “It’s like we did that. So now as we expand the lyrical viewpoint of this three song trilogy, the music that was interesting to us this time around kind of surprised us. And ‘Less Than’ is not entirely representative of where the rest of the EP goes. So this collection of five songs feels like brothers.
