According to The Pulse Of Radio, NINE INCH NAILS members Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are composing the score for an upcoming ten-part documentary on the Vietnam War from filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, which will premiere this September on PBS. The film, titled "The Vietnam War", will feature more than two hours of original music by Reznor and Ross, as well as new versions of NIN material and work from their scores for the films "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and "The Social Network".
Burns is known for his iconic documentaries "The Civil War" and "Baseball".
Some of Reznor and Ross's score can be heard in a new promo for "The Vietnam War". The clip examines the notorious Christmas Bombings, which leveled areas around Hanoi and Haiphong in December 1972.
Reznor and Ross said in a statement: "The sheer scale of the project combined with the magnitude of the subject matter was initially daunting for us, but the commitment, care and reverence (the filmmakers) displayed made the experience deeply satisfying on many levels."
The soundtrack will also feature a number of songs from the era, including tracks by THE BEATLES, THE ROLLING STONES, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell and others.
