Trent Reznor Says NIN Not Dead
Trent Reznor continues to be in the news, but this time it should please Nine Inch Nails fans. Reznor revealed that new NIN music is in the horizon.
The creator of Pretty Hate Machine and recent Oscar winner took to the NIN fan forum to thank his supporters and give an update on future projects, which includes working on new Nine Inch Nails material.
"No, Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next."
Reznor also confirmed that he's not done with How To Destroy Angels' debut album, his project with wife Mariqueen Maandig and The Social Network soundtrack partner Atticus Ross, and how all these different outlets allow him to channel his creativity in new ways.
"Perhaps I misspoke on the red carpet or wherever it was I said the new How To Destroy Angels record is finished - it is not. We've been working since last summer on it and are due to mix it this summer for a fall release. We've spent a lot of time experimenting and finding our own sound and identity this time around and we're very happy with the results."
"The three columns of things I'm currently funneling music into - HTDA, NIN and film work - I believe will start to make more sense to you (and me) as everything unfolds. By having a few different outlets for my work I'm finding more inspiration within each one."
As reported yesterday, Reznor has been in talks to score the soundtrack to the upcoming film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The musician all but confirmed his involvement.
"The idea was a cameo-esque role that would be kept under wraps and be a surprise around opening night. I was considering this when I awoke a few days ago to the news I am now STARRING in ALVH (which is obviously not true). F___. We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore. So... do me a favor and act surprised, OK?"
Don't disappoint him, Internet.
