Take This Nail For Free!

Posted by gottabkd on Tuesday, May 13, 2008

Nine Inch Nails is a group that apparently appreciates their fans: so much so that they are giving their newest album The Slip, away for free. 11 songs and 43 minutes of music… all for free including multiple formats to suite everyone’s music player.

According to their site:

“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.”

They even encourage you to :

we encourage you to
remix it
share it with your friends,
post it on your blog,
play it on your podcast,
give it to strangers,
etc.

And that it because “the slip is licensed under a creative commons attribution non-commercial share alike license.”
The Slip album song titles are:
999,999
1,000,000
letting you
discipline
echoplex
head down
lights in the sky
corona radiata
the four of us are dying
demon seed
total length: 43:45

OK, this is very cool, especially if you are a fan of theirs and their uber cool music.
While you visit the site, you can sign up to become a member… You know what they say: “membership has it’s privileges” and some of these privileges include advance ticket purchases to their 2008 North American tour.

Poke around the site a bit more and you will also find a free download to their instrumental only album Ghosts I-IV. For free, you will only receive 9 of the 36 songs, but for 5 measly buckaroos (5$) you can download all 36 songs. You can have a listen here. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it is an interesting blend of fusion, beats, and very weird sounds.

So check them out, buy some merch, download The Slip or the Ghost I-IV and enjoy all this group has to offer.

Cheers
