The Skinny: Nine Inch Nails has announced they will release their new full-length album Hesitation Marks on September 3rd via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The new studio album, which Trent Reznor recorded with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder over the course of the past year, marks the first new music from Nine Inch Nails in five years.
Lead single, “Came Back Haunted” appeared online in the early hours of this morning and has had an overwhelming response, spreading across the web almost instantaneously. In a matter of hours the track had over three hundred thousand plays on SoundCloud alone and earned not one, but two of the Top 10 worldwide trends on Twitter. The single is at radio now and available to stream on SoundCloud and YouTube; it will be officially available to download from iTunes tomorrow (June 07).
“I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately,” said Trent Reznor. “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!”
