The frontman revealed that he "intends to contribute" two new songs to a new collection, according to The New Yorker.

He added that he also plans to write new music for a brand new full-length Nine Inch Nails album shortly afterwards.

Nine Inch Nails went on an indefinite hiatus in 2009 after a farewell tour. Their last studio release was 2008's The Slip.

Reznor has since been working on movie soundtracks while also focusing on his music project How To Destroy Angels with wife Mariqueen Maandig, Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan.

The musician also spoke about his upcoming collaboration with Dr Dre's Beats By Dre. He explained that it will be a music streaming project provisionally titled Daisy.

Daisy will be released in early 2013, and will help users sort through songs in a different way to the likes of Spotify.

He said: "'Here's 16 million licensed pieces of music', they've said, but you're not stumbling into anything.

"What's missing is a system that adds a layer of intelligent curation. As great as it is to have all this information bombarding you, there's a real value in trusted filters.

"It's like having your own guy when you go into the record store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn't necessarily have encountered."

Trent Reznor previously hinted at new Nine Inch Nails material for 2012 last year, but this failed to materialise.
