I was shooting a video till three in the morning. The last few weeks have been terribly intense. The way I work is that up to the last second stuff looks like shit, and at the last minute it comes together. But I feel like I’ve done good work, and there’s still an audience there. I’m not looking out at the crowd and seeing a bunch of orthodontists. It’s new faces that look like the old ones, if that makes any sense. It feels valid to be back.

Hurt

Single Release

The artist sings a remake of the song that was originally written by Nine Inch Nails’, Trent Reznor. Cash’s cover song is released on his album, American IV: The Man Comes Around. Reznor:

I pop the video in, and wow… Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps… Wow. I felt like. I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn’t mine anymore… It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form. I wrote some words and music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone. Somehow that winds up reinterpreted by a music legend from a radically different era/genre and still retains sincerity and meaning — different, but every bit as pure.
