Trent Reznor did all these interviews and we didn't even tell you

"I am Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and How to destroy angels. AMA". A string of words so many redditors had hoped for, for so long. Some takeaways:
Aside from destroy angel's new EP, what's next for you? A number of things. Tweaking some things for the HTDA full LP (coming in Spring), helping Josh out on a new QOTSA track, working with Roy, starting rehearsals for two bands.
Blah blah blah Fragile Reissue blah blah? The 5.1 mixes are done and sound amazing. Alan was the only person who could have possibly done it, and he did not disappoint. There are a couple other elements involved that we want to get right before we put this into production. These involve packaging and additional content. Patience, my friends.

I don't think I quoted the second question exactly, but you get the point. Dig into the thread for yourself, and catch up on what he said.

If you'd like something a little more formal, Trent spoke with The Quietus back in December. I keep stumbling across good stuff at that site, and this is no exception. Ned Raggett speaks with Trent about exploring new avenues and the challenges of creativity.

What's that? The Quietus not good enough? Alright, pull out all the stops - The New Yorker profiled Trent a week later, and it's worth the read. You can get access to the full article from the New Yorker for $6 (I know, so painful, spending that cheddar), or you can read it for free at your local library, or if you want the birds-eye-view, Morad at Antiquiet summarizes the plot.

Actually, so does Pitchfork, and they write a much more attention grabbing headline: Nine Inch Nails Best-Of Due With New Songs, Reznor Working on Streaming Service With Beats by Dre. What I just did here is the opposite of that, it's called burying the lede. Thanks for reading!
