What a few months Trent Reznor has had winning both Oscars and Golden Globes for his work on the Social network and it's original score. Yesterday though news got out that he is to re-focus on Nine Inch Nails and he did so by posting on a NIN Forum which you can check out over here.
In the thread Trent says, "The three columns of things I'm currently funneling music into — HDTA, NIN, and film work — I believe will start to make sense to you (and me) as everything unfolds," going onto say that he likes having multiple outlets; "By having a few different outlets for my work, I'm finding more inspiration within each one." So you can sleep soundly in your beds tonight, no, we know they won't be performing Live again after he announced that wouldn't happen again in 2009, but new material is on the not so distant horizon for NIN fans.
In relation to his film work Trent touches on the rumours of him starring in Tim Burton's co-produced Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Reznor says; "I was considering [a cameo] when I awoke a few days ago to the news that I am not STARRING in ALVH (which is obviously not true)... Fuck. We apparently forgot that the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore. So…do me a favor and act surprised, OK?". So we will definately be seeing a lot more of Trent in the coming months and years.
