Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross - A Minute to Breathe

by paul_guyet Rating:9 Release Date:2016-10-07

Any Nine Inch Nails fans out there remember "Big Man With A Gun"?

This is not that.

Before The Flood is the upcoming documentary centering around actor and UN Messenger of Peace, Leonardo DiCaprio, travelling the world and discussing the threat of climate change and global warming with a number of environmental and political leaders. The score features new, original music from Argentinian composer, Gustavo Santaolalla (The Last of Us score), Mogwai, and Reznor and Ross, as well as collaborations between the lot. Reznor and Ross released "A Minute to Breathe" on October 7th, along with an absolutely stunning video (directed by John Crawford and Reuben Wu) which you can view below.

Lyrically, it's a bit on the nose for an environmental documentary, with lyrics such as "In time we're the same/We're the same/All to blame" and "We will all be judged/By what we leave behind" but, you'll forgive that bit of cheese by the time the song hit its gloriously sorrowful crescendo and Reznor starts to plead, "I just need a minute to breathe" amidst a dark, oceanic swell of Reznor and Ross' signature sound. This is yet another clear example of why Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross work so well together. 

Before The Flood will premiere on National Geographic October 30th, while the soundtrack will be released digitally on October 21st and then on vinyl in early 2017. Pre-orders can be found on the official Nine Inch Nails store.
