Trent Reznor– along with his major label side-project, video game music, headphone partnership, and, of course, recent triumphs in film scoring– says new music from Nine Inch Nails is in the works, as Rolling Stone reports.
Nine Inch Nails have been inactive since their 2009 “farewell” tour, but, as you may recall, Reznor hinted at hypothetical plans to exercise his NIN writing chops back in January. Now he’s told RS that “all signs point to yes” for new music, and that “there are some things in the works.” He also said it’s possible they’ll play live again “if it feels right.”
“Having a few years doing other things, I’ve enjoyed [them] and I’m enjoying doing How to destroy angels_, and there will be a place for stuff that falls in the Nine Inch Nails column of things,” Reznor told Rolling Stone. “It’s a different kind of work.” Regarding the trajectory of his past few years, he said, “It’s been an unexpected, weird ride. I’m just trying to approach things with integrity and try to find things that are interesting to me.”
Reznor also mentioned that How to destroy angels_, who are releasing their An omen_ EP on November 13, will have a full-length record in early 2013, with music videos coming soon, and live performances next year.
