Trent Reznor keeps on his promise
March 2, 2008 9:37 PM   Subscribe

Trent Reznor releases a new Nine Inch Nails album out of the fucking blue called Ghosts. The first 9 tracks are free, and it's on The Pirate Bay. The whole thing is $5 (with a slew of other order options) which you can get on their website (which is getting hammered right now), or on Amazon. The digital downloads are 320kbps MP3/FLAC/Apple Lossless. All DRM-free.

$5 for the digital download. $10 for the 2CD album, including a link to the digital download. $75 for the Deluxe Edition Package, which includes the album in a fabric slip-cover case, a DVD with the album in multi-track format, and a Bluray disc with the music accompanied by a slideshow. Oh, and there's the $300 ultra-deluxe limited edition (limited to 2,500 units) which includes more shit.

Not quite out of the fucking blue; he strongly hinted at something like this last October:

Reznor announced Monday that the group is now "free of any recording contract with any label." Representatives from Reznor's music label, Universal Music Group, were unavailable for comment.

Reznor provided few details in a note on the band's Web site about how the group plans to proceed, but his announcement raised hopes among fans that he will follow the lead of British band Radiohead, which last week announced it would handle sales and distribution for its upcoming album, In Rainbows without the backing of a label...

At a performance in Australia last month, Reznor expressed frustration with the high prices that labels charge for CDs. "Steal it," Reznor told the audience. "Steal away. Steal and steal, and steal some more and give it to all your friends."

The official site is getting killed right now.

Funny that a couple days ago I noticed the (unreleased) "Closure" dvd on piratebay. The uploader, seed0, is widely believed to be Trent himself, distributing things that never got properly released because of various copyright- and label-related issues.

There's already a wikipedia page on the album. I'm really interested to hear it.

I can't see how this is anything but a good thing. If recording execs start seeing that they can be circumvented, then maybe they'll start taking bands and customers seriously.

As always, I, being a total cheapskate, will continue to buy all of my music used.

Autechre did something similar with extras on the physical release, releasing their new album Quaristice as a download a month earlier than the physical product:

The new album "Quaristice" from Autechre is out now as MP3 via Bleep.com. The MP3 version includes track-by-track artwork from The Designers Republic and sees the light of day 1 month before the physical copy hits the shops.

Next to the normal version you may also expect a highly limited 2xCD edition with special steel packaging and bonus disc to be released on March 3rd but sold out already in pre-order within 24 hours of going online in the Warpmart shop. Strictly limited to 1000 copies worldwide, this 2CD version of the 20track "Quaristice" album holds a bonus disc containing 11 different versions of selected tracks and was sold at 24 UK Pounds, roughly 50 US dollars, plus shipping. All tracks were produced by Autechre and are exclusive to this edition of the album.


This is how musicians will get people to buy physical releases.

yeah, you could say hammered. I'm gonna have to buy it later after I've downloaded it from TPB because I just can't get through to the nin store. And I will. This is one of those things I really want to support.

Meathead from TNH wrote up an entertaining review.

For those fighting your way through the ass-slow store, I recommend (if possible) using Paypal when the option presents itself to bounce over to a somewhat more reliable server to actually deal with paying.

The download speed, oddly, was fine - 150-200k for my MP3 zip download.

Heh, that was the fastest torrent ever ... took all of 2 minutes?

The record sounds great, sorta NIN meets Brian Eno.

But as a grammar geek, I wish they would start calling themselves "Nine-Inch Nails," not "Nine Inch Nails." Because what's an inch nail? And why do you need nine of them?

So basically, if you get the $75 deluxe set with the multitrack files, the CC license lets you release your own remixes. Sweet.

How many times do I have to re-enter the stupid security code to get through to the bit where it accepts my email address and sends me the link to the free download? I'm up to eight so far and getting frustrated, and I can't even read this next one. The rest of the site was running pretty fast too.

I don't normally do torrents but would really like to listen to a few tracks before I decide to buy so will probably have to give in and reinstall uTorrent. Bah.

OK so torrent was the way to go. Installing the software and downloading the file took about 15 minutes total. And several of those were working out how to find the files after they downloaded.

I still say that within years, the music companies as we know them will atrophy into hired guns -- much like studios and CD printers -- that the artists themselves will call upon and pay to distribute and market their wares.

Basically, bands will pony up costs for the studios, the studio personnel, the distribution, the marketing... then the albums will be sold at whatever the artists choose (since the bills have already been paid, so to speak), and they will make their real money touring or selling merchandise.

You watch. I'm tellin' ya.

The moral is, charge your customers more upfront, and give them free shipping, and they'll thank you. And that way, you can overcharge for shipping and no one notices. Win - win.

good on Trent. And so far this is way the hell better than his last two albums. Brilliant business model, too. If i was more into electronic music , I'd totally spring for the multi-track DVD.

Or after they have a record to sell but no one will listen to it because a record label didn't contact all the appropriate media outlets and give them the magic password so that said media outlets could assure listeners that [new band #43,587,234] was super-hawt? Will it be by shameless self-linking in forums?! Lord, I hope not. Somebody flag this, and quickly.

well, in the indie world this is pretty much how it happens anyways... your little label usually doesn't have the marketing or advertising budget to make a real dent in the market for YOUR NEW RELEASE, so bands wind up forming their own productions companies as an LLC, and then supplement whatever ad bucks they feel is required (or just do much of it themselves).

This is, unfortunately, why most indie groups are, in reality, spoiled upper-middle class proto-businessmen dressed in skinny jeans and a cardigan.

bad/good? i don't know... i suppose i would rather reward THEIR hard work than have the big label machine do everything and siphon the cash to the top. opinions?

Note that (per the FAQ) the physical CD will be available in stores on April 8. Who knows what the price for it will be, though.

Also, since the site's still getting hammered, if anyone who successfully ordered the 2xCD version could tell us what US shipping cost is, it'd be appreciated.

Awesome. This will possibly wind up pleasing me more than the last two albums in terms of the long term, though I do like Year Zero more than With Teeth.
But anyway, I'm more than happy to support any artist when their material is distributed this way! Niggy Tardust was definitely one of my albums of the year, and anything Trent produces I always want a flac copy as my digital versions.

Does this mean that the Year Zero ARG or story or whatever it was is now over? How did that end. I'm sorry to say I lost interest after hearing the rather lame album.
posted by Pastabagel at 7:04 AM on March 3, 2008


Echoing many other posters here; Trent's music has become less and less interesting to me as the years have passed... more because I don't like the messy, layered heavy metal that he's done for three albums. However, this album, instrumental and ambient, is exactly what I've wanted to hear from him for years.

So I get to buy a NIN album that I like for the first time in nearly ten years, for just $5? Hell yeah!
posted by ChrisR at 7:05 AM on March 3, 2008


Update: I was able to make the $5 purchase by using the credit card route. After a wait of about five minutes, I received an emailed receipt and another email containing the download URL. At the download URL, I was given the choice between MP3/320, FLAC and Apple Lossless. I picked MP3/320, which comes in a 200MB+ ZIP file.

The download commenced at a very slow rate, somewhere around 10kps or so. Unfortunately, the download ended prematurely around 11MB. I sent an email to NIN store support, but have yet to hear back.

Anyone else having this kind of flaky download problem?

In retrospect, I should've probably gone the Amazon MP3 route. Though the bitrate might've been a bit less (256), I would've benefited from the Amazon Downloader to manage the download by pulling the album one track at a time.
posted by grabbingsand at 7:23 AM on March 3, 2008


Hot damn, I'm excited. I spotted the "two hours" post he made on nin.com prior to the release, and I had assumed the build-up was just for an announcement of some kind.

I got to hear the first track on the online preview player before the site crapped out on me- nice! Reminds me vaguely of The Fragile (always a good thing). A bit one-noted, but from what I've read from people who've heard more of it the songs are all over the place stylistically. It will be interesting to see what fans do with the multi-tracks.

This is going to be a loooong work day. Can't wait to order my copy and listen to the whole thing this evening. I'll probably end up shelling out for the $75 package- I'm getting flashbacks to my days as an avid collector of all things NIN. Well played, Trent.
posted by kryptondog at 7:25 AM on March 3, 2008


grabbingsand - there did seem to be many notes around that if your download fails you can still go back and restart it no problem. So I wouldn't worry and possibly just wait 'til it calms down a bit.
I'm going to just leave it until tomorrow I think, as I'm on a slow connection and will be getting the flac copy.

grabbingsand, my download also ended prematurely.

opsin, I don't know about reusing the link. It's clearly marked in at least two places as ONE USE ONLY, and when I optimistically clicked it again, nothing happened. Maybe that's just a function of the overloaded servers. I sent an email to support. I would go the torrent route, but I don't see the FLAC version on Pirate Bay or btjunkie.

The download didn't work. I *finally* got a confirmation from Paypal after trying for almost an hour and I *finally* got the download link. I tried several times and it would either not load at all or would time out after less than a minute. Finally I got the error "Exceeded Download Limit".

As she indicated upthread, the wife grabbed this last night (the first collection of free tracks, anyway) and we listened to it on the way into work today. It's pretty good for a purely instrumental work, though I am forced to admit that one of the things that I like most about Trent is his voice, so hopefully the full CDs offer more lyrically oriented stuff.
posted by quin at 9:23 AM on March 3, 2008


Well, it looks like the straight-up download route is rife with instability, which is a shame.

Frankly, I was hoping optimistically for a bit more preparedness. After all, if artists are going to take one lesson from In Rainbows regarding distribution, you would think that they might remember also just how quickly the Radiohead e-commerce servers were overwhelmed by fans that wanted only to fork over their cash.

Perhaps things will improve this evening. Maybe I'll get a second, better download link from customer service.

Of course, having paid already the artist for the album directly, I could just seek it out via Pirate Bay or similar.

I've never fawned over Reznor, but I've always respected his talents as an artist. I wasn't crazy about Year Zero (and I have a boner for concept albums..oh wait..the kids call it an ARG, right?) and only liked a couple of songs off of With Teeth.

This tastes much like The Fragile, but very much not like the Fragile (which is my favorite way to hear an artist advance). I'm really impressed with what I'm hearing so far (Track 2 had me near tears). It feels very emotionally resonant and raw - hell, he did this in only 10 weeks, so there's not TOO much polish on any of it.

Then again, it may sound as good as it does because of the price (free hot dogs always taste better, no?).

I love how this is supposedly some new internet-friendly music industry business model that has you paying out $75 for a package that pushes a blu-ray disc onto you that, chances are, you're going to have to buy a blu-ray player to use.
posted by tapeguy at 10:20 AM on March 3, 2008


I'm assuming a couple of things here:
1) The garageband/multi-track version which are on the deluxe and ultra-deluxe versions will presumably make their way onto the usual remix.nin.com site, available for members to download and play with - just like virtually every other NIN track.
2) Older, rare NIN stuff tends to go for silly money sometimes. $300 is a fair whack of change for the ultra-deluxe pack, but as an investment? I'm torn... but the £:$ rate is pretty favourable... but would I ever actually want to sell it... and where would I store it... argh!
posted by Chunder at 10:28 AM on March 3, 2008


I nearly bought the Deluxe edition, except when it came to pay, s&h to the UK was $49.95.

Same here -- listened to about 1/3 of it now, and it's just terrific. I personally can't stand his voice (exception being the Downward Spiral, where the vocals are heavily processed) or lyrics, so it's great to listen to all these amazing, raw sounds without those distractions.

The Year Zero remix album also came with a data DVD of all the multi-tracks for Year Zero.

Since a lot of people are having download issues, and because the work is licensed under good ol' BY-NC-SA, I'm willing to send the 320 MP3 version to any MeFi user who's having issues downloading from the official site.

Forward me your receipt (my email is in my profile; feel free to blank out bits you're not comfortable with me seeing) and I'll send you the link.

One more thing--time may prove me wrong, but I think the $300 price tag for the ultra-magical edition will ultimately cripple demand for it, considering that there's already a common version of the material. Even though there's only 2,500 copies, I see them being available for quite a while--years, I'd expect.

Whether you like NIN's music or not (I don't, although I used to and I'll occasionally put on Pretty Hate Machine for nostalgia purposes), Reznor really should be commended for things like this. He's doing a lot to push towards a new business model for the music industry, one that cuts out the predatory labels and gives all the power to the artist and is viable for the digital age. Bravo, Trent. I may even buy the record anyway just to support his efforts, plus the main thing I dislike about NIN is the juvenile lyrics, so maybe the instrumentals will be enjoyable.
posted by DecemberBoy at 11:44 PM on March 3, 2008


I know what you mean, DecemberBoy. To this day (and I'm just a fraction of the fan I was when I was younger), I can be awe-struck by the sound of an NIN song even while the lyrics make me cringe slightly. For all Trent's talent, he's never been a strong songwriter.

My final verdict on Ghosts I-IV: There's about 8 songs that don't captivate me, but the rest is pure NIN sonic mindfuckery (and that's not bad given the price and the sheer number of songs). It really gets under your skin. It lacks a sense of unity, but I feel that Trent wasn't terribly concerned about that.

Also: (1) this music is pretty good, but good enough to merit a $300 collectible edition? Even with the bonus doodads and the signing and numbering, I'm not seeing $300 there--the profit margin on it must be insane. Maybe a lot of people bought it with the intent of flipping it on eBay? The Halo numbering does encourage the collector's impulse.

(2) To state the obvious, if that's the kind of demand he can gin up with nearly zero advance publicity, then Reznor will never have to deal with a record label again.

I wouldn't, but it's not at all implausible to me.

I know we'll never be certain, but I'd be really curious to see what the production costs on that thing are. If I recall, radiohead have indicated that they were breaking even on the limited-edition In Rainbows box set. I have to think Trent did a better than that here.

I found the free Ghosts tracks elsewhere, and search MeFi to see who posted it... it's OK. Reminds me a little of Eno too.

Free Charlatans?! Sweet!

Some people are obviously desperate for the ultra deluxe version - although the auction linked to my matt_od didn't get any bids, others have done: USD1,200, USD1,500, and USD1,225. Crazy.

That said, I really like the 9 tracks of the free download (half of them more than the others) and I can't wait to get the full version... and I'm very glad now that I bit the bullet and decided to go for the big box set whilst it was available.
