Having been rather vague of late about whether or not new Nine Inch Nails material was in the pipeline, Trent Reznor appeared online overnight to confirm a new album was very much in the works, that it would be released later this year, and that material from it would be premiered at the band’s set at the Fuji Rock Festival on 26 Jun.

Says Reznor: “I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!”

When it is unleashed later this year, the new NIN album will come out via Reznor’s new major label buddy Sony Music, which signed up his other band How To Destroy Angels last year. Confirming that, Rob Stringer, head of Sony’s Columbia division in the US, told reporters: “We are thrilled at Columbia to work with a true renaissance artist like Trent Reznor on the return of Nine Inch Nails and an exciting new chapter of innovative music from them”.
