After Trent Reznor let slip last week that he had secretly recorded a new Nine Inch Nails album over the past year, he offered the title and release date yesterday, along with a slippery new song and the itinerary for a fall tour.

"Came Back Haunted," available now on iTunes, is the first release from Hesitation Marks, which is due out September 3rd on Columbia. The song rides a sleek electronic bassline over a jittery, popping beat that is increasingly overlaid with swirls of synthesizers as the tune builds to a slashing guitar break, then winds through an extended outro section. Reznor sings with restrained, clenched-jaw intensity, his voice enveloped by the music. 

Nine Inch Nails Announce New Album

Nine Inch Nails will start a 31-date North American tour on September 28th in St. Paul, Minnesota, and continue through November 25th in Calgary, Alberta. Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You! Black Emperor will each open some of the dates. Tickets go on sale starting June 14th through Live Nation. See the full itinerary below.

Reznor and Co. will also perform at Lollapalooza on August 2nd, the Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia over Labor Day Weekend and at the Voodoo Fest in New Orleans November 1st-3rd.
