Trent Reznor + Atticus Ross Reveal ‘Juno’ Theme in Honor of NASA Jupiter Mission
While we wait on new Nine Inch Nails music, there is something new to share from Trent Reznor and his music scoring partner Atticus Ross. The pair have teamed up on a new song called "Juno" that's being used by NASA in promotion of the fact that the Juno Mission is set to reach Jupiter's orbit this coming week.
You can catch a bit of the eight-and-a-half minute "Juno" theme in the trailer above, and as you can hear, the portion of the song used masterfully builds the intensity to go along with the images used.
The full track is described as "a chilling soundscape of unspeakable beauty," "deeply cinematic" and highlighted by "feverish atmospherics," "chains of glassy melody" and "haunting textures." You can hear it in full at iTunes / Apple Music.
NASA's Juno spacecraft launched in 2011 and will arrive in Jupiter's orbit on July 4. This will be the closest that any spacecraft has come to the planet. Learn more here.
Reznor and Ross have a long running musical partnership. In addition to winning an Oscar together for Best Original Score on the film The Social Network and winning a Grammy for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo soundtrack score, they've also worked together on music for How to Destroy Angels, Nine Inch Nails and Tapeworm.
