Trent Reznor and David Lynch will team up for Nine Inch Nails' video for "Came Back Haunted," the first time the pair has collaborated since 1997's Lost Highway soundtrack. The glitchy track is the first single off NIN's upcoming album, Hesitation Marks, which will be out September 3rd on Columbia.

Today, Reznor posted a photo of the duo on Twitter with a caption of their initials ("tr;dl") and Blackbook reported Lynch's involvement. It is shaping up to be a busy summer for both artists: Lynch will release his LP The Big Dream on June 16th, and Nine Inch Nails will hit the road with Godspeed You Black Emperor and Explosions in the Sky.

Back in 1997, Rolling Stone ran a cover story on the dark pair, with Reznor discussing his adoration for the director. "I’m a huge David Lynch fan – we used to hold up Nine Inch Nails shows just so we could watch the latest Twin Peaks. So we set up a weekend for him to come to my place in New Orleans," he said. "At first, it was like the most high-pressure situation ever. It was literally one minute, 'Hi, I'm David Lynch,' and he’s cooler than I even imagined he would be. Three minutes later, he's saying: 'Well, let’s go in the studio and get started.'"

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
