Trent Reznor Shares Song ‘Outside’ From ‘Bird Box’ Soundtrack

To ring in the new year, Trent Reznor, 54, revealed that he scored Netflix’s newest hit flick, “Bird Box” (2018), with longtime collaborator Atticus Ross.

The Nine Inch Nails (NIN) frontman also shared one of the original compositions, “Outside”, which is a 12-minute long, spine-chilling experience — much like the film itself.

Reznor and Ross have famously partnered on a number of critically-acclaimed scores, including “The Social Network” (2010) and David Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”(2011), as well as “Gone Girl” in 2014.

In a series of tweets, Reznor expressed his gratitude for his fans’ support in 2018. He added, “Yes. Atticus and I scored “Bird Box”The soundtrack is now available.”

In a statement on the NIN website, Reznor revealed that not all of the music created for “Bird Box” actually made it to the final cut.

He promised fans that an additional hour of music and artwork would be made available in a strictly physical LP format in the spring.

“For those interested, we will be releasing a more expansive (more self-indulgent) physical-only offering,” he wrote.

“We’ve decided to present you with a version of the soundtrack that represents what “Bird Box” is to us,” he added. “We hope you enjoy.”

“We aim for these records to play like albums that take you on a journey and can exist as a companion pieces to the films and as their own separate works,” he concluded.

Bird Box“, directed by Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier (“Brothers”, “After the Wedding”), was based on the book of the same name, written by American author Josh Malerman.

The post-apocalyptic film deals with enigmatic supernatural beings that cause those who see them to commit suicide. This means everyone must either stay inside or close their eyes in order to survive.

The film stars Sandra Bullock as Malorie Hayes, the sole carer of two children — and the stakes are high.

The only chance of hope is a blindfolded journey down a seemingly endless river, in which Hayes desperately fights for any kind of salvation for the helpless children.

Bier enlisted Reznor and Ross to create a completely original score for the film at the beginning of production to accurately capture the thrill and intensity of the feature.
