Big things seem to be happening lately for Trent Reznor.  Not only did he just win a Golden Globe award for best motion picture score for the ‘The Social Network’, but now it looks like he is going to spend 2012 working on writing a new Nine Inch Nails album.

“I’m going to be writing for Nine Inch Nails this year,” Reznor told “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.”

Of course this is all in the preliminary stages, and while he sounds focused on this is project, it also sounds like it isn’t quite a go just yet.

“At the moment [the new album is] going to live in the Nine Inch Nails column, for a few reasons,” explained Reznor. “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. 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.”

While that may leave fans with some doubt, Trent’s side project, How to Destroy Angels, is expected to release a new album in the next few months.
