HEALTH and Nine Inch Nails Join Forces on New Song ‘ISN’T EVERYONE’

    Los Angeles band HEALTH and Nine Inch Nails and have teamed up for a new song called ‘ISN’T EVERYONE’. The collaborative single was produced by both groups and mixed by Nine Inch Nails’ Atticus Ross. Check it out below.

    “It’s fucking Nine Inch Nails,” HEALTH said in a statement. “That speaks for itself. You don’t need a clever quote to encapsulate it.”

    HEAKTH’s Jake Duzsik explained how the collaboration came about in an interview for New Zealand journalist David Farrier’s newsletter:

    So I sent him an example — we’d done a track with a band that opened for him as well — so I sent him that track and said “here’s what we’re doing, the idea would be that we would collaborate on a track and build it from the ground up.”

    And it was maybe long enough where I was like “it’s been long enough, this is not happening.” And I got an email from him and I was like: “oh shit.”

    So we sent him a demo and we did it very purposefully, where we sent something that was very skeletal. Because if you sent mostly a done track, that is not a collaboration — you are asking someone to guest on it. And the thing that ended up being really remarkable on it was we have done a lot of these collaborations now, and there can be a fair amount of awkwardness and not knowing — getting comfortable with your bandmates takes time — so you never know what it’s going to be like.

    But Atticus and Trent put in more effort and more time — we did conference calls! They take everything they do very seriously so it was very deliberate, with a lot of attention to detail.
