The Good News: More Trent Reznor Music! The Bad News? It’s Not NIN.

There’s been much chatter about Trent Reznor reactivating Nine Inch Nails, which would be a welcome addition to the current 90s resurrection in alt-rock. Those plans–if they still exist–will come after the release of a new soundtrack album for an upcoming Leo DiCaprio film that will premiere at TIFF in Toronto. From Rolling Stone:

Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Gustavo Santaolalla and Mogwai have teamed up to score the upcoming documentary Before the Flood. The film — an environmental call-to-action helmed by Leonardo DiCaprio and Fisher Stevens — will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival.

For the first time, frequent collaborators Reznor and Ross were the film’s music supervisors. The pair had previously scored the David Fincher features The Social Network, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl. An album version of the score will be available on an unspecified date in October, the same month when Before the Flood hits select theaters in New York City and Los Angeles (October 21st) and premieres globally on the National Geographic in 171 countries and 45 languages (October 30th).

    You can’t resurrect something that has never been away. Trent Reznor has been releasing NIN music quite steadily for the last few years.
