The New Yorker (via
PitchFork) that he's is helping to design a brand new
music-streaming service, which is set to launch next year.
The service "uses mathematics to offer suggestions to the

suggestions made by connoisseurs, making it a platform in which the
machine and the human would collide more intimately."

listened to... has begun to feel synthetic."
He described Daisy as being,
"like having your own guy when you go into the record
store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some
paths you wouldn't necessarily have encountered."
In the interview Reznor also stated that a Nine Inch
Nails greatest hits compilation is also in the way and
will include two new songs.
