Trent Reznor has confirmed that new Nine Inch Nails music is nigh, with the band set to start chipping away at new material “as soon as probably tomorrow.”

Yesterday, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross picked up the Academy Award for Best Original Score for their contribution to Pixar’s Soul. In an interview following the win, Reznor weighed in on what the future has in store for Nine Inch Nails.

“10 years ago when we did The Social Network, which is the first film that we worked on, it was such a great experience,” he said. “We just came out of it inspired and re‑energised, and it was working on a medium we hadn’t done before and learned so much, that we felt like: ‘Hey, let’s do a Nine Inch Nails record; let’s go on tour’.

Reznor went on to detail the Nine Inch Nails creative process, explaining that they like to transition between working on material for the band and film scores.

“And what we’ve tried to do since then is break it up where we do some rock music, we come back and do some film work. We’ve just done three pretty big films in Watchmen, Mank and Soul in a row. We should be on tour but Covid has prevented that.”

He adds, “We are planning on working on Nine Inch Nails material as soon as probably tomorrow.”

The last new music we heard from Nine Inch Nails were the fifth and sixth volumes of the band’s Ghost series, Together and Locusts.
