In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor hinted at a new project coming later this year. Asked about recording and touring plans for 2014, Reznor replied, “We’re leaving to go to tour mid-to-late February . . . We’ve got dates booked through the end of the summer. A lot of touring ahead. Just started on a new product. Can’t tell you what it is yet. 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.”
- Asked to say more about the recording project, Reznor stated, “That’s more than I should’ve.”
- The latest Nine Inch Nails album, Hesitation Marks, came out last September after Reznor put the group on hiatus for five years.
- Reznor was also asked by Rolling Stone about Beats Music, the new streaming service he helped launch last week with Dr. Dre and others.
- Reznor, who is Chief Creative Officer of the service, said, “I’m not part of the editorial team or the content team. What I’ve done has been more architectural, in terms of ‘What is this thing? What is the spirit of this thing? How does it look?’ . . . 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.”
