The Faint Remix NIN for Year Zero Remix Album

Scuttlebutt 'round the internet today suggested that Nine Inch Nails' latest not-halfway-bad Year Zero LP would get itself remixed, repackaged, and issued at an indeterminate date in the future. (The hubbub stems mostly from this post on the NIN tour blog and this image.) That's swell for Trent, but we figured we'd wait until we knew a little bit more about just who exactly is tinkering with the tracks before filling you in.

Then diligent reader Matt Bovett tipped us off to an entry on the Faint's news page, which suggests that they'll be among the ones slapping a fresh coat on Year Zero. Indeed, 'tis true: their manager confirms that the Faint remixed "Meet Your Master", and that it "sounds really great, by the way." We hope so-- their slightly-more-lighthearted goth sensibilities should provide some much-needed levity to Trent's permabrood.

Still no word on any other contributors or a tracklist for Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D (or, if you will, "Halo 25").

There's also a potentially amazing (but mostly unsubstantiated) rumor going around that Trent's going to turn Year Zero into a TV show, a gesture that would immediately make him into the second creepiest person on television. That Rachael Ray's gonna be tough to unseat.
