Nine Inch Nails have premiered their second single from upcoming album, Hesitation Marks. Listen to 'Copy Of A' below.

The track follows on from the brutal pumelling of 'Came Back Haunted' as an epic, sprawling and typically NIN number that features a gradual and repetetive trancey build-up with a dark intensity before an almighty rock crescendo.

The repetitive rhythm of the track echo the lyrics' theme of a struggle for identity: "I am just a shadow of a shadow of a shadow, always trying to catch up with myself - I am just an echo of an echo of an echo - listening to someone's cry for help."

Listen to 'Copy Of A' below:

Nine Inch Nails' new album, Hesitation Marks, will be released on 2 September. The band will play an intimate show at The Scala in London on 20 August ahead of their main stage performances at Reading & Leeds festival.
