Reznor told Billboard that, following his recent David Fincher soundtrack efforts for The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, “I’m going to be writing for Nine Inch Nails this year.”

He said he doesn’t have a particular goal, just that “my voice as a songwriter feels like it needs to speak up or at least work out a little bit to not atrophy. I think I have something to say that feels unique to who I am right now, and that’s when it tells me it’s time to do something.”

Reznor rested Nine In Nails in 2009, and has been working on movie music and his How To Destroy Angels project, but feels that new music is going “live in the Nine Inch Nails column, for a few reasons. I enjoy the challenge of moving that kind of brand forward, that identity, shaping it to who I am now instead of who I was a few years ago when I last left off.”

Yet after all these confirmations, he still hedged his bets: “It’s all kind of hypothetical right now. When I sit down with a notebook and a little mini-recorder is when my bluff will be called, and then it might not happen at all.”

How To Destroy Angels, his musical project with his wife and soundtracking buddy Atticus Ross, is slated to have a debut full-length out this year.
