NME points out that Trent Reznor, who recently scored David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, will begin working on new Nine Inch Nails songs next year. In an interview with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio One, the songwriter said he’d be writing tracks with the band “in mind” next year.
“I need to commit to doing something different, and that doesn’t mean I’m not going to return to [Nine Inch Nails] at some point,” Reznor said in the interview.
“But I find myself pushed and pulled back into the same routine of album, tour, album, tour, album, tour, while a list of things I’d like to try and do in life sits untouched on the table.”
This comes after Reznor retired the band as a touring entity in 2009 with the “Wave Goodbye” tour. But the songwriter said at the time that he would most likely record music under the Nine Inch Nails name again.
