ReImagined At Home: Francisca Valenzuela Performs A Pindrop Version Of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt"
When Nine Inch Nails leader Trent Reznor first heard Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt," he had a full-body emotional reaction. "Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps," Reznor described his feelings to Thursday's Geoff Rickly in 2004.
"It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form," Reznor added about the highly personal song's transposal into another genre, rumbled from an iconic voice.
In the latest episode of ReImagined At Home, the lineage of "Hurt" continues by way of Francisca Valenzuela, a Chilean singer/songwriter, pianist and poet. She strips back the arrangement to its skeleton, thereby turning every line into a knife-twist on its own accord.
