Trent Reznor and David Lynch. It’s a match made in, well, a dark place.

Lynch, the veteran filmmaker who has helmed the surreal masterpieces “Eraserhead” and “Blue Velvet”, looks likely to direct the video for Nine Inch Nails’ comeback track "Came Back Haunted."

Reznor tipped-off his Twitter followers with a photo of himself (looking particularly pasty) and Lynch, with the simple caption, “tr;dl”.

The NIN band leader is an avowed fan, and has told interviewers that Lynch's films has been an inspiration for his music.


Earlier this month, Nine Inch Nails confirmed a September release for their new Columbia Records album, unveiled plans for a full-scale North American tour this Fall, and dropped the new song.  

In the late May press release to announce the new recording deal, Reznor gave some insight into the direction of his new “Hesitation Marks” album."For the last year I've been secretly working nonstop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record," he said, "which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great.”

Lynch has his own, sophomore album due July 16.

In an exclusive interview with Billboard, Lynch opened-up about “The Big Dream,” noting he felt “a little bit more confident, and I feel like the songs are tighter” than the first time around.
