Scissor Sisters' frontman Jake Shears has revealed to Spinner he is a huge fan of Trent Reznor -- and says his band wants to do a cover of the Nine Inch Nails track 'Piggy.'
The Sisters first shot to fame with their version of Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb,' and Shears says the next cover they'd like to tackle is the second track on NIN's 1994 'Downward Spiral' album.
Talking to Spinner ahead of the release of their third album 'Night Work' , Shears explains, "I love cover songs and I've always wanted to do a honky-tonk version of 'Piggy.' Me and [bandmate] Babydaddy are huge fans of Nine Inch Nails, I think Trent is a real genius."
Shears also revealed that Santigold had co-written track 'Running Out' on the band's new album too. He explains, "I'm a big fan of hers, we met when she was opening for a Coldplay concert."
As for the forthcoming new record, the singer said although he felt under pressure for it to perform following the previous two chart-topping LPs, he was "immensely proud" of the finished product.
Shears adds, "I think it's our most fun record. It's so over-the-top, a real party album. It's a celebration of sex in a lot of ways, there's all sorts of points of view in there, gay, straight and everything in between. There's a dark streak that runs through it though, if you read between the lines. There's some of the filthiest stuff we've ever written, but we've made it all so everything is innuendo to keep the radio people happy. The album is one ecstatic, joyful, sadistic disco nightmare!"
'Fire With Fire', the first single from the album, comes out on June 20.
