Nine Inch Nails will release a new studio album — their first since 2008's The Slip — some time this year on their new label, Columbia Records.

"I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to lately," Trent Reznor said in a statement. "For the last year, I've been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great."

Nine Inch Nails Welcome Back Guitarist Robin Finck

Reznor told Rolling Stone last year that he was working on new Nine Inch Nails material after the group disbanded after their farewell tour in 2009. Earlier this year, the frontman confirmed NIN was indeed coming back with a brand-new lineup that would play a handful of festivals (including Lollapalooza and Outside Lands) this summer and arena dates in the fall.

Reznor has kept busy in the years since he ended NIN, scoring music for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network and winning an Oscar with Ross for the latter.

"This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again," Reznor added in the release. "My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place."

Along with Reznor, Nine Inch Nails' new lineup features Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Robin Finck and Ilan Rubin; this group will make their debut at the Fuji Rock Festival in Naeba, Japan on July 26th.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
