Trent Reznor Releases “Ghosts I-IV”

The site is getting hammered, but Trent’s just released a new 36 track instrument album:

> Trent Reznor explains, “I’ve been considering and wanting to make this kind of record for years, but by its very nature it wouldn’t have made sense until this point. This collection of music is the result of working from a very visual perspective – dressing imagined locations and scenarios with sound and texture; a soundtrack for daydreams. I’m very pleased with the result and the ability to present it directly to you without interference. I hope you enjoy the first four volumes of Ghosts.”

You can either get it through the site in multiple different packages, or through the Amazon MP3 store.


Trent Reznor Is Now A Free Agent

hello everyone. i’ve waited a long time to be able to make the
following announcement: as of right now nine inch nails is a totally
free agent, free of any recording contract with any label. i have
been under recording contracts for 18 years and have watched the
business radically mutate from one thing to something inherently very
different and it gives me great pleasure to be able to finally have a
direct relationship with the audience as i see fit and appropriate.
look for some announcements in the near future regarding 2008.
exciting times, indeed.

NIN Radio Shows

Trent Reznor and Peter Murphy are in the midst of a [five-station radio tour]( Each show has some old NIN standards as well as a cover or two. The cover of Nightclubbing is particularly smile-inducing, given [Trent’s history with it](

I’m not entirely sure how much I prefer Peter Murphy’s vocals on some of the songs, but the interpretations on existing songs are at least *interesting*.

NIN fans who know me should drop me an IM.
