The NIN frontman took to Twitter to announce the band's return
Posting on his personal account, Reznor said “New NIN coming in 2016. Other stuff, too.”
The US outfit haven’t released an album since 2013’s ‘Hesitation Marks’. The group followed this with ‘Cargo in the Blood’, a limited edition, 320-page book about the artwork behind ‘Hesitation Marks’.
Only 2,000 copies of the book were made and each contained a mixed-media painting by Russell Mills, who created the artwork for the album, as well as previous artwork for the band.
Filmmaker Charles Leek also made a short film about the book, which can be viewed on the ‘Cargo in the Blood’ website.
Elsewhere Reznor has been busy: he is reportedly working on a new project to bring much-loved novel and film Fight Club to the stage in the form of a rock opera.
Director David Fincher and the book’s author Chuck Palahniuk are said to be involved in the project. Reznor and Fincher have previously teamed up for several movie scores, including The Social Network, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl.
Reznor also spoke about Apple’s new streaming service Apple Music following its last month (June 30).
Reznor served as Chief Creative Officer for Beats prior to its acquisition by tech giant Apple. The musician has since occupied a similar role at Apple Music, helping design the platform and its new Beats 1 radio station.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Reznor said he continued his involvement with the company after the Apple merger because “anything that makes music more important to people is worth it”.
