TRENT REZNOR MIGHT BE THE COOLEST GUY IN THE WORLD (THERE’S A BRAND NEW FULL NINE INCH NAILS ALBUM OUT TODAY – FOR FREE)
As hinted by another mysterious “2 weeks” blog post exactly two weeks ago and various hints dropped by Trent Reznor during that timeframe, a new Nine Inch Nails album — this one a full, proper with-vocals album as opposed to the instrumental four-album series Ghosts — is available today, called The Slip. The album features the tracks “Discipline” and “Echoplex” (both released for free download last week) and is available for 100% free download at NIN.com in a variety of audio formats, including better-than-CD-quality FLAC files.
Reznor seems to have opted against the model he used to release Ghosts, which made several special editions available in a variety of configurations, including the $300 super-special, signed, deluxe version which made him a millionaire in two days. Why wouldn’t he opt for a similar tactic this time around? Perhaps he is rewarding fans for their goodwill and dedication by giving them a deserved treat, or perhaps we has something else up his sleeve.
Either way: Trent Reznor = the man.
