Trent Reznor did an interview with Rick Rubin recently, when he explained he thinks pop music “sucks generally.” But wait, there was a fascinating moment.
Telling a story of how he saw his daughter singing along to a Dua Lipa track, he explained “She is so into it and it is so cool… It really reminded me of the art of writing a well-crafted song — I teared up listening to a Dua Lipa track, because it was just a really well-done piece of music, you know?”
