The new studio album, which Trent Reznor recorded with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder over the course of the past year, marks the first new music from Nine Inch Nails in five years and is their first release on Polydor Records. 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!”
