Trent Reznor Can’t Stop Giving Stuff Away For Free

By brandon / May 5, 2008

Maybe you’re still absorbing Ghosts and “Discipline” (and no longer absorbing NiggyTardust!, or however you spell it), but if you head on over to theslip.nin.com/ you’ll find a note from Trent — who must be taking a break from all his CD signing — explaining his newest venture in free-ness, The Slip LP:

as a thank you to our fans for your continued support, we are giving away the new nine inch nails album one hundred percent free, exclusively via nin.com.

the music is available in a variety of formats including high-quality MP3, FLAC or M4A lossless at CD quality and even higher-than-CD quality 24/96 WAVE. your link will include all options – all free. all downloads include a PDF with artwork and credits.

for those of you interested in physical products, fear not. we plan to make a version of this release available on CD and vinyl in july. details coming soon.

We sent for the MP3 version this AM. “Discipline” is track four of ten. It’s mostly Trent rock with a few ambient, moody, and piano moments. It has vocals. “Letting You” is an early, frenetic favorite. Oh, also for those of you interested in physical products — there are some live actions as well.
