Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross Cover David Bowie’s ‘Life On Mars?’
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross shared a cover of the David Bowie classic “Life On Mars?” The instrumental rendition was recorded by the Nine Inch Nails frontman and his longtime collaborator for the HBO series Watchmen.
The pair provided the score for the superhero drama and reworked “Life On Mars?” for inclusion in “An Almost Religious Awe,” an episode of Watchmen that premiered on Sunday night. Reznor and Ross’ version of the song from David Bowie’s 1971 studio album Hunky Dory will appear on the third volume of their Watchmen score, which is due on vinyl December 16. The first installment of their three-volume Watchmen soundtrack was released on November 4 with the second following on November 25.
