Watch: Trent Reznor Discusses Return to Major Labels in Conversation With David Byrne
Trent Reznor’s career has been, at worst, completely fertile. He began his start with Nine Inch Nails, who saw much success, although not quite as much as he had wished. Back then, his band lacked the marketing from their record label compared to other act of the time, like Radiohead.
Since his time with the band, he was off on his own individual projects, creating scores and soundtracks for movies. However, his time away from the label has seemed to have brought him right back again. His newest album was signed through Columbia Records and was seen as a necessary step, by Reznor, who speaks about the double edged sword that record industries can embody today.
