Trent Reznor's latest project will release a new EP through a major label.

The former Nine Inch Nails frontman's new group, How to Destroy Angels, announced that it will be releasing its second EP on Nov. 13, entitled An Omen. He also wrote that the title, as well as the group's "next series of releases," would be made available in partnership with Columbia Records.

Reznor explained his reasoning for signing with Columbia in a Facebook post. We "really spent a long time thinking about things and it makes sense for a lot of reasons, including a chance to work with our old friend Mark Williams," he wrote.

"Complete independent releasing has its great points but also comes with shortcomings," the artist noted. Reznor has  been outspoken about developing independent ways to distribute his work and has been skeptical of record labels.

An Omen is How to Destroy Angels second EP. The group's first, a self-titled release, arrived in June 2010 and is  available as a digital download for free on the band's website.
