Nine Inch Nails’ Alessandro Cortini Plots Solo Ambient Album, Shares Stormy ‘La Sveglia’

Italian producer Alessandro Cortini is best known for contributing tortured electronics to Nine Inch Nails, but he’s also built up a pretty hefty resumé of solo ambient records. He returns today with news of Risveglio, his second full-length for noise godhead Dominick Fernow‘s Hospital Productions, and a single called “La Sveglia.”

It’s a dusty collage of sedated synth parts, collapsing and fading into one another as the track progresses. While decidedly more outré than his work with the industrial-rock legends, the overcast atmosphere will feel familiar to fans of the band. Listen to “La Sveglia” here (via The Fader) as you wait for Risveglio, due July 27.
