Confirming what he’d hinted at before, Trent Reznor tells The New Yorker that Nine Inch Nails will be recording a new album in the near future. The frontman says that the album will come out in 2014, following a greatest hits collection that will also contain two new songs.
Reznor also says he’s been working with Interscope and Beats By Dre on a new music-streaming service tentatively called Daisy. It’s set to launch in early 2013, holds 16 million licensed pieces of music, and uses mathematics to offer “intelligent curation” to the listener. Reznor equates it to “having your own guy when you go to the record store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn’t necessarily have encountered”—because God forbid anyone actually have to go to the record store and deal with a person who gets paid to do that already.
