now for some interviews about the new album.
NINE INCH NAILS

A new NIN album already? Oh go on then...

Your last album took six years. We've only had to wait 18 months for this one.
Trent Reznor (vocals): "It's been pretty interesting, I'm probably as surprised as some fans are (laughs). But really it's just a matter of discipline. When i was on the last tour, to keep myself busy i was just really hunkered down and was working on music the whole time, so this kept me in a creative mode and when i finished the tour i felt like i wasn't tired and wanted to keep at it."

Is there anyone else playing on the album?
"It's all me, mostly recorded in hotel rooms around the world on laptops. There maybe some surprise vocalists that pop up here and there - although i don't want to say who since the final mix hasn't been determined yet, and Josh Freese is playing the drums on one song, but it's not like a big guest star-type record. It feels a bit more focused in a certain direction than 'With Teeth' did,"

What's the concept?
"I'm trying to avoid getting too detailed about this but i will tell you that this is a concept record, and it's part of a bigger picture of a number of thing's I'm working on. Essentially i wrote the soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist. This album is a bit more electronic and I'd say rhyme plays a bigger element in it than in the past and it's veering away from concern about song structure and getting played on the radio."

Are you talking about some kind of multimedia event?
"My goal is that the music can be interpreted with the richest context. So what I'm immersed in is a way to achieve that. Now that albums have gone from 12 inches of real estate with artwork and a whole aesthetic, to CDs, which are ugly and disposable, to nowadays just being a file on a computer, it's led me to putting a lot of thought in to ways to present music that still makes it feel important and that has depth and purpose."

Will it be a heavy album?
"It's not heavy in any kind of metal tyoe sense, I'd say a big inspiration sonically would be early Public Enemy records, a collage of sound type of thing, not heavy in a metal guitar kind of way."

On 'The Downward Spiral' and 'The Fragile' you blended together an extreme amount of disparate sounds and layers - is this moving further in that direction?
"Well Alan Moulder (long-time collaborator) was stunned when he first heard it. Normally a Pro-Tools session has alot of tracks and this time he was like 'You're kidding me, it's only this much stuff?'. The end result has a bit of racket to it, it's much more improvisational, less refined. With this record i feel alot less concerned about what people think about it - espcially the dying record industry. I couldn't care less about that right now."


NINE INCH NAILS mastermind Trent Reznor has revealed more information about the group's upcoming album, tentatively due in early 2007. In a December 27, 2006 blog entry on the official NIN fan club web site The Spiral, Reznor writes, "Usually when I finish a record, I have to go into battle with the people whose job is to figure out how to sell the record. The only time that didn't happen was 'With Teeth'. This time, however, I'm expecting an epic struggle. This is not a particularly friendly record and it certainly doesn't sound like anything else out there right now. Artists these days are not encouraged to experiment or take risks, and my punishment is on its way.

"Feeling physically run-down and emotionally insecure at this moment, and baffled as to why I feel the need to share this with you!"

The next NINE INCH NAILS album will follow 2005's "With Teeth", which was the group's first collection of new material in six years.

NINE INCH NAILS will chronicle the tour in support of its 2005 comeback album "With Teeth" with the DVD "Beside You in Time", due February 27 via Interscope. The main body of the project features 19 songs, two of which ("Right Where It Belongs" and "Beside You in Time") can be viewed from alternate camera angles.

Trailers from "Beside You in Time" can be viewed on the band's web site. The DVD will be available in standard form as well as in HD and Blu-Ray, although the regular edition will include audio mixes in Dolby Digital Stereo, Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1.

Reznor played the first solo show of his career on October 21 at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit outside San Francisco, according to Billboard.com. Reznor was backed only by a four-piece string section as he played subdued versions of NINE INCH NAILS tracks such as "Piggy", "The Fragile" and "Hurt".

Ill leave you with a pic of Saul recording tracks for the new NIN in Knoxville. This could also be for the next Saul album, which will also be produced by Trent.

The new album is titled "Year Zero". I'm really looking forward to this one based on his descriptions as a concept album. The soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t exist, and more electronic.
That says it right there, I'm sold.
With new Skinny Puppy and Marilyn Manson albums also coming out, it already looks like this is going to be a great year for the music we dig.

... except that the Skinny Puppy album kind of sucks and Manson jumped the shark a couple of albums ago. :rdown:
