In an interview with the Quietus, electro pioneer Numan said: "I know he wants to carry on doing music things. We went out a few days after [the LA gigs] with a few other people and the way he puts it is when the dust settles -- I think he means his marriage -- but I think he's going to be pretty busy for a while, so it'll either be later this year or early next."
Asked whether the collaboration would be for a full album, Numan said: "Probably just a few songs to start with and see how it goes on. It'll be cool."
Numan recently joined Reznor onstage during NIN's farewell shows in London and said he was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. "For some reason, I don't know why, I just thought it would be a different atmosphere to what it was. And what it was was just really warm and friendly, and Nine Inch Nails and warm and friendly don't necessarily go together! I should have known better. Everyone was great, the crew, the band, everybody, they made me feel really welcome. It was a fantastic experience, I was riding on that for a bit."
Numan also flew out to guest on NIN's final shows in Los Angeles, as previously reported in Spinner, alongside luminaries such as Jane's Addiction's Dave Navarro and David Bowie collaborator Mike Garson.
