Trent Reznor Hints at New Nine Inch Nails Tunes, Talks Beats Music Streaming Service

Spencer Kaufman, Loudwire

Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor always has something up his sleeve. Just a few days ago, Reznor helped launch the Beats Music streaming service as the project’s Chief Creative Officer. In addition to that feat, Reznor suggests that there may be new Nine Inch Nails music under way.

Beats is most often associated with co-founder and iconic rapper Dr. Dre. However, Trent Reznor stepped into the fold to form a surprising partnership. The launch of Beats Music, which now competes with sites such as Spotify, was hugely successful. In fact, it was so successful that the software “experienced issues” and was put on hold to work out the bugs since so many people were flocking to it.

“We’re trying to bring joy to the user and sort through the world’s catalog of music into digestible parcels that considers context where it might be,” Reznor tells Rolling Stone. “It re-imagines the home stereo as sitting in your pocket rather than on a shelf in your house. It’s coming up with the idea that humans need to be involved in this process and the miracle of algorithms. What we’ve been promised – it seems great, but more often than not it feels like a computer.”

As for some new Nine Inch Nails goodness, Reznor couldn’t help but leak a small bit of info. “Just started on a new product,” Reznor reveals. “Can’t tell you what it is yet. It will take place while touring. New music maybe this fall. Every spare second, and even seconds that aren’t spare, are trying to wrangle this new creation into shape.”

Stay tuned into Loudwire for all your Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails news.
