Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor doesn’t tweet very often. When he does, though, his nearly 2 million Twitter followers take note… and they don’t forget. Nearly a year ago, Reznor teased fans that 2016 would bring new music from NIN:

Since then, fans have counted down the days, watching the year tick by with no sign of a new album. Meanwhile, Reznor and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross released an instrumental track inspired by NASA’s Juno mission, as well as a soundtrack for the climate change documentary “Before The Flood.” In January, music from the pair will score the new film “Patriots Day.”
So with only 18 days left in 2016, is there any hope for new Nine Inch Nails before the new year?
“Just wait and see what happens,” Reznor says in a new interview in Rolling Stone.
