More new NIN released. Well, sort of.

Seen Bird Box on Netflix yet? If so, did you pay attention to the soundtrack? Like The Social Network and a score of other, er, scores, it’s another instrumental creation of Trent Reznor and partner Atticus Ross.

An abridged version of the soundtrack–if you can called 66 minutes “abridged”–has been released in High-Res Audio on the NIN website. It’ll appear on streaming services on January 25.

If you still want more, a greatly expanded physical version (i.e. something double the length) is coming later in the year.

Here’s a sample of the soundtrack.

The whole “abridged” version looks like this.

Bird Box Original Score Tracklist:
01. Outside
02. Undercurrents
03. Looking Forwards and Backwards
04. What Isn’t Anymore
05. Sleep Deprivation
06. Careful What You Wish For
07. A Hidden Moment
08. And It Keeps Coming
