As we reported last week, Trent Reznor dropped a bomb about Nine Inch Nails' reunion album not only being in the works, but pretty much finished already. He did at least give a few days' advance notice that the album's first single would be premiering today, but then he went and sneaked it a day ahead of schedule. You gotta get up pretty early to keep up with this guy.
The new track, “Came Back Haunted,” launched on KROQ last night, and you can listen to the whole glorious thing right here:
The album, now officially titled Hesitation Marks, may even have a legit release date – NIN hinted earlier this week on their Twitter feed that “Halo 28” (“Halo” is Reznor-code for each entry in the NIN release catalog, and Hesitation Marks will be the 28th release) may be dropping on September 3rd. That will make it five years since the band's last album The Slip. The album artwork, shown below, was unveiled on Pitchfork, where it was also revealed that the standard edition will contain 14 tracks, while a deluxe edition adding three bonus remixes and a 28-page book.
