Nine Inch Nails Signs With Columbia Records, New Album Due Out Later This Year

Posted by on May 28, 2013

While they continue to finalize its lineup, the reformed Nine Inch Nails now have a new label home. In fact, not only has NIN confirmed that they’ve signed to Columbia Records, but also that a new album will likely come out later this year.

This is somewhat of a surprising turn of events since Trent Reznor himself said in an interview last March that “there’s no new record scheduled at this point.” Admitting that he told a little white lie, Reznor had the following to say about the forthcoming album:

“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!”

As for the new label home, some may be a tad surprise considering that Reznor had been intent on going the DIY route since NIN’s contract with Interscope expired in 2007. However, it shouldn’t be that surprising of a move since Reznor’s other band How To Destroy Angels is also signed to Columbia. While an official release date has yet to be confirmed, rumors suggest that we could hear a new NIN song as soon as next month.
