I’m going to ask you a question… who was the one collaboration that everyone desperately wanted in 2012?

THAT’S RIGHT! Nine Inch Nails and Carly Rae Jepsen!

While we unfortunately didn’t get the collaboration between the two artists in 2012, we got the next best thing in 2013; a mash-up of “Call Me Maybe” and “Head Like A Hole”, affectionately titled “Call Me A-Hole”. Listen for yourself,

This is true love

Though one wouldn’t really think that Trent Reznor’s deeply anguished vocals would mesh too well with Jepsen’s bubblegum-pop music, the mash-up actually comes out pretty nicely.

The song flows surprisingly well and when you get past the humorous aspects of it, it’s pretty cool to listen to.

This ought to get you pumped to see NIN if you get the chance at one of their international festival appearances, listed below.

More dates will be announced in the near future.

7.26.13 Naeba, Japan Fuji Rock Festival
7.28.13 Ansan, South Korea Ansan Valley Festival
8.18.13 Hockenheim, Germany Rock’n’Heim Festival
