Nine Inch Nails

Hear Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross’ Cover Of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars?”


The late musician/actor, etc. David Bowie played a pivotal role in the life of Nine Inch Nails‘ “Trent Reznor. Not only did his music greatly inspire Reznor, but his friendship and wisdom helped motivate Reznor to get sober. As such, there’s no doubt that Reznor approached his and his Nine Inch Nails‘ bandmate Atticus Ross‘ below newly shared instrumental cover of David Bowie‘s “Life On Mars?” with certain amount of care and respect.

The rendition was tracked for the score to HBO‘s ongoing TV adaptation of the ‘Watchmen‘ series and will appear on the upcoming third and final volume of the score, which will be released on December 16th. The first two volumes are available now.

In addition to this cover, the below track “The Way It Used To Be” from that third volume was also recently shared online. If you’re curious, you can read more about the relationship Reznor and Bowie shared here.
