Nine Inch Nails are gearing up to start working on their next full-length record following a string of film scores, but the band aren’t particularly happy about how one film score, in particular, turned out.

Band leader Trent Reznor says in a recent interview with Revolver that Bird Box left him frustrated and he felt like it “was a fucking waste of time.”

Nine Inch Nails recently dropped Bird Box / Null 09 Extended, a two-hour collection of material created during the sessions for scoring the movie which the band were unsatisfied with.

In the interview with Revolver, Reznor reveals that “When we got immersed in it, it felt like some people were phoning it in.”

“And you’re stuck with a film editor who had real bad taste. That’s kind of our barricade to getting stuff in the film. And the final icing on the shit cake was we were on tour when they mixed it. And they mixed the music so low, you couldn’t hear it anyway. So it was like, that was a… That was a fucking waste of time. Then we thought, no one’s going to see this fucking movie. And, of course, it’s the hugest movie ever in Netflix.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the musician discusses some of what fans can expect on the new record. He says they plan to do a lot more collaboration and that they have a list of people they want to work with. He also says they will hopefully hit the road for some shows towards the back half of 2020.
