Trent Reznor Speaks on NIN Possibilities

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/13/12)
Trent Reznor has said he is thinking of writing for Nine Inch Nails again.
From the Interview"I'm going to be writing for Nine Inch Nails this year... [I don't] have any particular goal in mind other than... my voice as a songwriter feels like it needs to speak up or at least work out a little bit to not atrophy. I think I have something to say that feels unique to who I am right now, and that's when it tells me it's time to do something... I enjoy the challenge of moving that kind of brand forward, that identity, shaping it to who I am now instead of who I was a few years ago when I last left off... It's all kind of hypothetical right now. When I sit down with a notebook and a little mini-recorder is when my bluff will be called, and then it might not happen at all."

He talks like it's a business, which it kind of is.

I'm still listening.

Not sure what you mean by that. Quotes like this one give me the exact opposite impression:

It sounds like art in an incredibly pure form. Writing not for a paycheck or to gratify fans, but because he feels as though he has something new to contribute.

Probably not but who knows? He might just do what Neurosis does: release albums while only playing one or two shows a year.

Exactly. I mean, he gave what, his last two albums away free?

Hopefully that this means he'll take NIN out on tour again. Not likely, considering that he has to take How to Destroy Angels on tour but there's still hope. Either way, this means new NIN and that's always a good thing.
