Danny Elfman announces solo album and releases Nine Inch Nails like banger
April 12, 2021
Danny Elfman is very much known for his composing, with credits including Tim Burton and Good Will Hunting, and very much not known for solo work… because he hasn’t released a solo album since 1984 and that was called ‘So-Lo.’
However, Danny appears to have had some free time in lockdown as announced a whole new solo album, so after a wait of thirty-seven years fans can download ‘Big Mess’ on June 11th. There’s a new track from it called ‘True’ out, and it comes with a video that’s going to need the explanation: “The video is an exploration of fractured identity, muffled through the lens of memory,” director Sarah Sitkin explained. “Danny is a central figure within the video, yet only in his reproduced likeness via prosthetics, masks and 3D printed body parts. I wanted to make a video that was gritty, unpolished and uncomfortable.”
What does solo Danny sound like? ‘True’ is the sort of industrial that would have fitted onto the Se7en soundtrack.
