The first new material from the band since 2013.
Nine Inch Nails have released a new song ‘Burning Bright (Field On Fire)’.
The track will appear on the group’s upcoming EP Not The Actual Events, which frontman Trent Reznor has described as “an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record that we needed to make.”
Following months of teasing, NIN’s first release since their 2013 album Hesitation Marks will arrive tomorrow (December 23).
The band are also planning to reissue several of their early releases on vinyl including The Fragile, The Downward Spiral and Broken – the first of which will come with 37 bonus tracks.
“We want to present the catalog as it was intended to be, with no compromises,” Reznor said of the re-releases. “That means a careful remastering of the audio from the original sources, a painstaking recreation of the artwork, pristine materials, some surprises and an insane attention to detail.”
Reznor has been busy working on soundtracks over the past few years. In 2016 alone, he scored Leonardo DiCaprio’s climate change awareness film Before The Flood, Peter Berg’s Boston Marathon bombing movie Patriot’s Day and even NASA’s mission to Jupiter together with long-time collaborator Atticus Ross. Ross, who also contributed to NIN’s latest EP, is now an official member of the band.
Nine Inch Nails are expected to put out a full new album and announce tour dates for 2017 in the months ahead.
