There is some toe-curling excitement for Nine Inch Nails’ fans today. During an interview with The New Yorker (Via Rolling Stone) main man Trent Reznor has confirmed that the Nine Inch Nails Greatest Hits compilation, expected for a 2014 release, will contain new material.
Reznor confirmed that he “intends to contribute” two new tracks for the impending release: “Yeah, there will be new music. There are some things in the works”. After the release of the best-of album, Reznor has also expressed a keen interest in releasing a brand spankin’ new NIN album soon after. Either one could have been the new material that Reznor has hinted at in the not too distant past.
Having been pretty preoccupied composing music for COD Black Ops II and his current side project How to Destroy Angels, NIN live shows have been put on the back burner, but a cheeky hint suggests that may not be the case much longer: “Yeah, if it feels right, it’s a possibility…I never said that that wasn’t going to happen, just that it couldn’t go on as it was.”
As though he isn’t done making his peers look lazy as it is, Reznor is also heavily involved with Dr. Dre for a new music-streaming concept. Currently under the working title of Daisy, the program is set to be like “having your own guy at a record store”, stating, “here’s 16 million licensed pieces of music, they’ve said, but you’re not stumbling into anything,”
He continued to explain the idea: “What’s missing is a system that adds a layer of intelligent curation…As great as it is to have all this information bombarding you, there’s a real value in trusted filters. It’s like having your own guy when you go into the record store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn’t necessarily have encountered.”
Keep those eyes pealed for more updates on all things Reznor; lot’s to come.
