Renowned director David Lynch was reportedly tapped by Nine Inch Nails to direct the video for their latest single "Came Back Haunted."
As Pitchfork reports, frontman Trent Reznor confirmed the collaboration with a photo of Lynch and himself posted on his official Twitter account. The image was accompanied with the pair's initials "tr;dl."
"Came Back Haunted" was premiered earlier this month and will also find its spot on the upcoming NIN album "Hesitation Marks." The record is set to drop on September 3 via Columbia Records as the eight release in the group's catalogue.
As far as the collaboration itself goes, this is the second time Reznor is teaming up with the "Twin Peaks" director, seeing that they have already joined forces on 1997's "Lost Highway" soundtrack. Back then, the frontman gave his thoughts on working with Lynch in an exclusive Rolling Stone interview, saying, "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."
The singer continued, "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.'"
The latest Nine Inch Nail release, "The Slip," saw its release back in July 2008. With 98,000 units shipped in the US within the first week, it debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 chart.
