Trent Reznor Hints at New Nine Inch Nails Album
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor confirmed he has started work on a new project with new music potentially coming out this fall. In addition to the follow up to 2013’s Hesitation Marks, which has garnered a nomination for Best Alternative Music Album at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards, the band will also continue their highly successful Tension Tour into 2014. “We’ve got dates booked through the end of the summer. A lot of touring ahead,” the 48-year old said.
As for the new project, Reznor wouldn’t reveal many specifics. “It will take place while touring. New music maybe this fall. Every spare second, and even seconds that aren’t spare, are trying to wrangle this new creation into shape.”
In addition to the previously mentioned unannounced dates, NIN will embark on an Australian tour with Queens of the Stone Age in February before breaking until the summer. Currently, Reznor is promoting his new streaming service, Beats Music, in conjunction with Dr. Dre’s Beats Electronics, which launched on January 21. On the streaming service, Reznor says, “We’re trying to bring joy to the user and sort through the world’s catalog of music into digestible parcels that considers context where it might be. It reimagines the home stereo as sitting in your pocket rather than on a shelf in your house.” Fans can now register for a Beats Music account via their website.
