Nine Inch Nails' new music video for "Came Back Haunted" starts with a warning for those who suffer seizures. There should have also been one for those who suffer nightmares.
The David Lynch-directed clip doesn't so much have a story, but hazy, shaky, blurred and disturbing shots of puffy monster faces, negatives of a ghoulish bug, clouds forming in the corners of rooms, and of course Trent Reznor's pale mug pinkly reciting its jagged little lyrics.
It's just what you wanted this comeback effort to be. That whole previous "Lost Highway" collaboration proves Lynch and Reznor make good partners.
"Came Back Haunted" is the lead single from NIN's new album "Hesitation Marks," due Sept. 3 on Columbia. As previously reported, the album features Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, King Crimson’s Adrian Belew (who had joined the band but only recently exited). Alessandro Cortini, Ilan Rubin and Joshua Eustis round out Reznor's lineup.
Here is the tracklist for "Hesitation Marks":
1. "The Eater of Dreams"
2. "Copy of A"
3. "Came Back Haunted"
4. "Find My Way"
5. "All Time Low"
9. "Various Methods of Escape"
11. "I Would for You"
12. "In Two"
13. "While I'm Still Here"
14. "Black Noise"
