Trent Reznor has teamed up with electronic artist Tobacco for a new song called “Babysitter.”
The decidedly weird tune will certainly add a jolt to your morning, as the Nine Inch Nails frontman sings in falsetto between the chorus of Tobacco declaring “I’m the new babysitter” over a harsh beat.
“Babysitter,” which is available now for digital download, will appear on the upcoming Tobacco album Hot Wet & Sassy, due out October 30.
“I’ve always been an album guy and my albums are my zone, so Trent being on this one is one of the more meaningful things to me,” Tobacco tells Rolling Stone. “Now he’s melted into it.”
Reznor’s Tobacco collaboration follows the release of two instrumental Nine Inch Nails albums, Ghosts V: Together and Ghosts VI: Locusts, which dropped in March. He and his band mate Atticus Ross were also just nominated for two Emmys for their Watchmen score.
