Speaking to the New York Times Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor has announced a whole swag of projects for us to expect in the next year.
The first project discussed was that following his Golden Globe nominated work on David Fincher‘s The Social Network Reznor and musical partner Atticus Ross will be teaming up with the director again to score Fincher’s next film the screen adaptation of bestselling novel The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo due this December. Speaking of the yet to be completed work Reznor said that compared to The Social Network soundtrack the score for The Girl With Dragon Tattoo will focus more on live performances and an organic feel, with nothing being programmed. He also said that we’ll get to hear “his limited skills at stringed instruments,” mentioning that we can definitely expect to see this record in 2011.
He also discussed the upcoming deluxe re-release of The Fragile. First mentioned over a year ago, the project which was left somewhat in the dark amidst the tumult of activity in the Reznor camp has now been revealed to be in the capable hands of the album’s original producer Alan Moulder, who has been tasked with restoring the original multitracks for a surround sound mix of the album. The album which has proven to have matured with age, Reznor saying of it’s reception that “it felt like no one liked the album,” but now “it feels like it’s everyone’s favorite,” is set for re-release later this year.
Not content with those two projects Trent also talked about How To Destroy Angels, his band with wife Mariqueen Maandig and Atticus Ross and their more ‘beat and rhythm oriented’ debut full length album. The man is real busy.
He did however also talk about future tour plans for NIN, saying “will I tour again? Certainly. Will Nine Inch Nails play shows again? I’m not saying it’s out of the question…” before going on to make it clear that “there is no tour booked.”
