Nine Inch Nails Sign With Columbia Records, New Album Due This Year

Nine Inch Nails are no longer free agents having signed a new deal with Columbia Records. As it turns out, a new album from the outfit is already finished and will see a release through the label later this year. Band mastermind Trent Reznor said of the outing:

“I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. 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!”

Columbia Records Chairman Rob Stringer also commented on the signing, offering:

“We are thrilled at Columbia to work with a true renaissance artist like Trent Reznor on the return of Nine Inch Nails and an exciting new chapter of innovative music from them.”

According to the press release, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Robin Finck and Ilan Rubin will comprise the core live lineup for the band. No mention was made of Adrian Belew—who was originally tipped—for the outfit.
