Ever since Reznor’s tweet last December (“New NIN coming in 2016. Other stuff, too.”), fans the world over have been eagerly awaiting any sort of development. The last time we heard from Reznor was in early July for the release of his Atticus Ross collaboration track “Juno” to commemorate the safe arrival of NASA’s Jupiter probe, Juno; not necessarily new Nails, but satisfying nonetheless. Last Wednesday, however, a reddit user leaked an image that suggests the long wait may be coming to an end.
The image (below), said to be from Kobalt Music Group’s database, clearly states that there is a new NIN single, “Dive and Slam”, set to drop September 16th. The track is even said to have already been registered to Trent Reznor on ASCAP’s Repertory. As to the validity of this rumor and the leaked image, Nine Inch Nails representatives have offered no comment. Reznor, however, composed a simple, one-phrease tweet in response:
