Trent Reznor has revealed that David Lynch will direct the new music video for their comeback song, “Came Back Haunted.”
Reznor, the band’s frontman, uploaded a picture to his Twitter account of himself and the legendary film director who has helmed the likes of Mullholland Drive and Eraserhead, indicating that they will once again be working together.
Reznor and Lynch previously collaborated on his 1997 film, Lost Highway.
The songwriter simply tweeted the caption, “tr;dl,” which stands for Reznor and Lynch’s names. The picture shows Lynch stood behind Reznor whose face takes up most of the frame. You can see it below.

When Reznor announced in May that the album was forthcoming, he stated, “For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly f—ing great.”
Meanwhile, David Lynch himself is currently working on his own second album, which is entitled, The Big Dream. It is the follow-up to his 2011 debut record, Crazy Clown Time, and features a cover version of Bob Dylan’s, “The Ballad of Hollis Brown.”
Lynch described the album as followed; “Most of the songs start out as a type of blues jam and then we go sideways from there. What comes out is a hybrid, modernised form of low-down blues. The Blues is an honest and emotional form of music that is thrilling to the soul. I keep coming back to it, because it feels so good.”
