Perhaps inspired by yesterday’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame snub (but most likely probably not), Trent Reznor has revealed that new Nine Inch Nails music will be released in 2016. But wait — there’s more!
“New NIN coming in 2016,” Reznor tweeted Friday afternoon, in only his third tweet since joining Twitter in August 2008. “Other stuff, too.”
Of course, that “other stuff” certainly opens up a whole new world of possibilities and collaborations — maybe even including new material from his other project, How To Destroy Angels. The last official Nine Inch Nails album was 2013’s Hesitation Marks, the project’s ninth studio effort, and since then, Reznor has remained busy, helping shape Apple Music, touring with Soundgarden, and teaming with frequent collaborator Atticus Ross to soundtrack David Fincher’s 2014 film Gone Girl.
Earlier this week, Reznor announced Cargo In The Blood, a new 320-page art book in collaboration with artist Russell Mills that details the artwork for Hesitation Marks. The musician followed up his NIN promise with a link to the book.
