Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails has collaborated with avant-garde electronic artist Tobacco on a new song called “Babysitter”. The track will appear on Tobacco’s upcoming album, “Hot Wet & Sassy”, which will be released on October 30 via Ghostly International. Tobacco and his previous band, Black Moth Super, toured with Trent and NIN in the past.
“I’ve always been an album guy and my albums are my zone, so Trent being on this one is one of the more meaningful things to me,” Tobacco, a.k.a. Tom Fec, told Rolling Stone. “Now he’s melted into it.
“‘Babysitter’ is like one of those experiments I need to do every once in a while, to see how far I can push it within the constructs of writing a song, without just making noise,” he continued. “[It’s] edging. Probably not that different from how Taylor Swift does it.”
