One thing about Trent Reznor, he never seems to get complacent. Part of that is the artist inside of him won’t allow atrophy of his creative muscles very long. The strength of his need to keep growing forward and evolving, Reznor continues an over decade long hot-streak of new and varied output either as a solo artist, entrepreneur, film composer, visual artist, fashion designer, his other band projects such as How To Destroy Angels and of course with Nine Inch Nails.
In a post on Twitter today, Trent Reznor promised a new Nine Inch Nails album release in 2016. Trent has been working on other projects under his own name, such as movie soundtracks with his frequent collaborator Atticus Ross like the acclaimed soundtrack to David Fincher’s Gone Girl. He has also released music with his wife Mariqueen Maandig under the moniker How To Destroy Angels. The last official Nine Inch Nails release was Hesitation Marks (Columbia Records) in 2013. A limited-edition artwork book titled Cargo In the Blood for that album, is out now.
New NIN coming in 2016. Other stuff, too.
