When Apple announced that they had acquired Beats, they also acquired the talent behind the company which included Jimmy Iovine, Dr. Dre, and Nine Inch Nails’ frontman Trent Reznor. Reznor is currently working as the chief creative officer at Beats, but what will his role at Apple be?
Well as it turns out, Reznor is working on an unannounced music project for both Apple and Beats. Speaking to Billboard, Reznor appeared to be a bit reluctant to divulge any information regarding said project, but hinted that it would be music-related. “I can’t go into details, but I feel like I’m in a unique position where I could be of benefit to them. That does mean some compromises in terms of how much brain power goes toward music and creating. This is very creative work that’s not directly making music, but it’s around music.” Read full post →Trent Reznor Working On Secret Music Project At Apple
