Two new songs...
NME reports that Nine Inch Nails are working on two new songs, which they could play live when they perform at the Reading and Leeds Festivals this summer.
He announced the return of the band after spending time working on film scores and writing and recording album with his other band How To Destroy Angels. Nine Inch Nails will perform their only UK shows of 2013 performing before Biffy Clyro.
He said: "There isn't any new material to play except from a couple of tracks Adrian (Belew, King Crimson guitarist and new member of Nine Inch Nails) and I started experimenting on that were intended to go on a greatest hits record. We decided to push that back to 2014, and there's no new record scheduled at this point. The intention is to reconstruct songs based on this new instrumentation and only play songs we as a band feel good about. With Nine Inch Nails last time, I felt that I'd explored that kind of bludgeoning rock thing in a lot of different ways, like I'd done everything I could do with that format."
The lineup includes Reznor, Eric Avery of Jane's Addiction, King Crimson's Adrian Belew and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv alongside long-term collaborators Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin.
