The new music will come in the form a five song EP titled Not The Actual Events, which will be released on Friday, December 23rd. Long time collaborator Atticus Ross worked on the project, and he is referred to as “now official bandmate,” on the Nine Inch Nails’ official site. The NIN storeis offering two formats available for pre-order now:  180g 1-sided Vinyl, and a unique limited Digital + Physical Component version.

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

Reznor also announced the release of a limited vinyl edition of 1999’s The Fragile. The special reissue contains 37 bonus tracks.

Reznor explains, “The Fragile occupies a very interesting and intimate place in my heart.  I was going through a turbulent time in my life when making it and revisiting it has become a form of therapy for me.  As an experiment, I removed all the vocals from the record and found it became a truly changed experience that worked on a different yet compelling level.  The Fragile: Deviations 1 represents Atticus and I embellishing the original record with a number of tracks from those sessions we didn’t use before.  The result paints a complimentary but different picture we wanted to share.”

The Fragile: Deviations 1 will not be available on any digital services and only available in this format while this limited run lasts.
