The EP will be released on December 23rd. After collaborating for the fourth time on a movie soundtrack (scoring Leonardo Di Caprio’s Before the Flood) with Atticus Ross, Reznor also defined him a “now official bandmate” who strongly collaborated in developing Not The Actual Events.

It’s an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record that we needed to make” says Reznor. “It’s an EP because that ended up being the proper length to tell that story.

Following this release, Nine Inch Nails also announced the reissue of their 1999 classical The Fragile on vinyl as well.Pretty good news for the fans. Listen to “Burning Bright“.
