A Good Omen: Trent Reznor and How to destroy angels_ Are Ready to Take Flight

Fans of Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails have been expecting new music from Reznor’s band How to destroy angels_ .  The highly anticipated EP titled An Omen_ is set to be released on November 13th by Columbia Records.

Historically, Reznor has taken issue with being stuck to a record label but he seems to have realized that independent status has its shortcomings, particularly as it relates to distribution, promotion and tours.

According to Reznor’s Facebook:

Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia, we’ve really spent a long time thinking about things and it makes sense for a lot of reasons, including a chance to work with our old friend Mark Williams. There’s a much more granular and rambling answer I could give (and likely will in an interview someplace) but it really comes down to us experimenting and trying new things to see what best serves our needs. Complete independent releasing has its great points but also comes with shortcomings.

Last month, we also have been given a new single from their upcoming EP “Keep it together”.

The band consists of Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig-Reznor, and long time collaborators and friends Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan.

Reznor has also revealed that he has been doing work with Dr. Dre:

Some of you may have read that I have begun working with Beats By Dre. For the past year I have indeed been involved with Dre, Jimmy Iovine, Luke Wood, and the rest of the team on a number of very interesting projects that will start to emerge next year. I have been wanting to experiment and focus my energy and creativity in some different directions, and Beats has afforded me that very opportunity. The process has been challenging and fascinating and as much as I’d like to tell you about the things we’ve dreamed up… I just can’t.
Not yet…
(I can tell you it’s probably not what you’re expecting!)

Reznor, Ross and another long time collaborator, Alessandro Cortini, also created a remix of the song “Destroyer” by Telepathe.
