The band commented:

“Friends- weird times indeed…

As the news seems to turn ever more grim by the hour, we’ve found ourselves vacillating wildly between feeling like there may be hope at times to utter despair — often changing minute to minute. Although each of us define ourselves as antisocial-types who prefer being on our own, this situation has really made us appreciate the power and need for connection.

Music — whether listening to it, thinking about it or creating it — has always been the thing that helped us get through anything — good or bad. With that in mind, we decided to burn the midnight oil and complete these new ‘Ghosts’ records as a means of staying somewhat sane.

‘Ghosts V: Together’ is for when things seem like it might all be okay, and ‘Ghosts VI: Locusts’… well, you’ll figure it out.

It made us feel better to make these and it feels good to share them. Music has always had a way of making us feel a little less alone in the world… and hopefully it does for you, too. Remember, everyone is in this thing together and this too shall pass.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Be smart and safe and take care of each other.

With love, Trent & Atticus”

Nine Inch Nails May Collaborate With Other Artists On Their Next Release

During an interview with Revolver, Trent Reznor revealed that he is hoping to collaborate with other artists on Nine Inch Nails’ next release. He said the following about that:

“We’re talking about doing some shows next year, maybe. Probably in the last half of the year. We have a template for the next Nine Inch Nails thing we want to do… I’ll give it away: collaboration. We’ve got a list of people we like. And we thought, kind of playing on the newfound spirit of collaboration that scoring has forced us into, seeing what happens when we mix our DNA with some other people, with a no pressure environment. Let’s see what happens. If something good happens, then maybe the world can hear it. But if it doesn’t, we put it in the pile with the other…”
