Nine Inch Nails and David Lynch are a match made in Disturbing Heaven. Trent Reznor tapped the director for NIN’s first video in 5 years, and it’s a glorious mix of surreal and eerie. A shaking Rez appears throughout among images of lightning bolts and what looks like something out of Lynch’s ‘Eraserhead.’ Nightmare-fuel indeed. The video does feature lots of flashing lights, so heed the warning.

This is the first time Reznor and Lynch have worked together since Trent produced the soundtrack for 1997’s ‘Lost Highway.’ Makes me wonder if he’ll be working with another one of our favorite directors anytime soon. “Came Back Haunted” is the first single from ‘Hesitation Marks,’ which will be released on September 3. The album is produced by some familiar NIN collaborators, Alan Moulder and Atticus Ross and also features a surprising guest in Fleetwood Mac‘s Lindsey Buckingham.
