Trent Reznor on “The Downward Spiral”: “It still excites me”

Through a message shared on the official website and on Nine Inch Nails' social networks, Trent Reznor wanted to celebrate his band's second studio album, “The Downward Spiral”, originally published theMarch 8, 1994.

On the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the album's release, the 58-year-old musician spoke about how that project continues to influence him and explained: “Spending too much time looking back seems dangerous to me, but this day on the calendar caught my attention.” In the message published yesterday, March 8, precisely thirty years after publication of “The Downward Spiral,” Reznor added:

“It's been a long time, huh, my old friend? I just spent an hour listening to this sort of time capsule of what I had to say at 28, and it still moves me and breaks my heart.”

The Nine Inch Nail mastermind concluded by encouraging fans to “be kind to yourself”, and added: “Hope to see you soon.”

The last work presented by NIN was the diptych composed of “Ghosts V: Together” and “Ghosts VI: Locusts”, released in 2020. Since then, Reznor and his bandmate Atticus Ros have been busy composing other soundtracks, the band has already given fans hope for new music soon. In 2021, for example, on the sidelines of the Oscar ceremony, which saw him win the award for 'best original soundtrack' for 'Soul' together with Ross, Trent Reznor himself explained “We are thinking of working on new material by Nine Inch Nails as soon as possible, probably tomorrow.”
