Though there's still another Nine Inch Nails EP in the works, the next thing fans will likely hear from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will be their latest score work. The musical partners recently lent their talents to creating the musical score for the upcoming Ken Burns and Lynn Novick documentary series The Vietnam War, which will start airing on PBS Sept. 17.

The Vietnam War will actually feature two soundtracks -- one featuring Reznor and Ross's score and the other being a more traditional soundtrack featuring a compilation of popular songs from the era that are featured in the series.

The Reznor and Ross score features over 90 minutes of new, original music available as a two-CD or three-LP set. Burns and Novick said in a joint statement, "The Vietnam War era produced some of the greatest, most impactful music ever recorded. We are grateful that so many artists from the period wanted to be part of the film and now the soundtrack. We were equally fortunate to have had the tremendous honor to work with Trent and Atticus. Their original score beautifully compliments the music from the time, and we are absolutely thrilled that our audiences will now have the chance to own the original score along with some of the best music from the film."

Reznor and Ross added, "We are incredibly honored to be a part of this project. With The Vietnam War, Ken, Lynn and [producer] Sarah [Botstein] have created something of vital importance. To bear witness to their process was immensely inspiring. The sheer scale of the project combined with the magnitude of the subject matter was initially daunting for us, but the commitment, care and reverence they displayed made the experience deeply satisfying on many levels."

The soundtrack compilation includes music from the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Simon & Garfunkel, the Temptations, The Byrds, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Janis Joplin and many more.

The 10-part documentary series features testimony from nearly 80 witnesses who fought in the war or opposed it, as well as interviews with some Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides. The Vietnam War will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on Sept. 19 and distributed by PBS at
