The free tracks compose the first of a four-volume set--nine out of 36 tracks. Users can pick up the entirety of Ghosts I-IV for an extremely reasonable $5, via NIN's official site.

Hello from Nine Inch Nails.

 

We’re very proud to present a new collection of instrumental music, Ghosts I-IV. Almost two hours of music recorded over an intense ten week period last fall, Ghosts I-IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain.

 

Now that we’re no longer constrained by a record label, we’ve decided to personally upload Ghosts I, the first of the four volumes, to various torrent sites, because we believe BitTorrent is a revolutionary digital distribution method, and we believe in finding ways to utilize new technologies instead of fighting them.

 

We encourage you to share the music of Ghosts I with your friends, post it on your website, play it on your podcast, use it for video projects, etc. It’s licensed for all non-commercial use under Creative Commons.

 

We’ve also made a 40 page PDF book to accompany the album. If you’d like to download it for free, visit http://ghosts.nin.com/main/pdf

 

Ghosts I is the first part of the 36 track collection Ghosts I-IV. Undoubtedly you’ll be able to find the complete collection on the same torrent network you found this file, but if you’re interested in the release, we encourage you to check it out at http://ghosts.nin.com, where the complete Ghosts I-IV is available directly from us in a variety of DRM-free digital formats, including FLAC lossless, for only $5. You can also order it on CD, or as a deluxe package with multitrack audio files, high definition audio on Blu-ray disc, and a large hard-bound book.

 

We genuinely appreciate your support, and hope you enjoy the new music. Thanks for listening.

 

BOOYAH!

Yep, Trent has been openly against the record companies for a long while. At a concert a few years ago he got pissed that his records were being sold for $20 at the concert. So, during the concert he told all of the fans to go home and illegally download the album...lol

 

Radiohead also released their album for free for several months before it finally hit stores.

It was recommended (by NiN) to use a torrent (for the first CD only) hosted at TPB since their site has seen too much traffic to handle it all.

I got it from their site no problem. Downloaded it about 6:00pm EST. Pretty cool about the FLAC recording as well.:nod:

Too bad I'm not a fan of their noise.

 

Now if Sarah Mclachlan did the same thing I'd be all over it.
