NIN Ghosts I-IV Cover

I have just heard that Nine Inch Nails has just released the first volume of their new album “Ghosts” on BitTorrent sites as a free download. The band is encouraging people to download the album and embrace the new distribution medium. Just remember because it’s avaliable for free doesn’t mean that you can’t donate a few dollars to the band to enable them to keep releasing their music.

“Ghosts” is released under a non-commercial Creative Commons license and can be shared freely, something their fans weren’t allowed to do when the band was held back by a record label.

In the release notes the band writes: “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.”

This sounds is music to our ears, in more ways than one. For now, only the first volume has been uploaded onto BitTorrent sites, but the entire collection is available for download on the official website for only $5

“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”. They further write in the release notes “But if you’re interested in the release, we encourage you to check it out at 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.”

Trent Reznor, the frontman of Nine Inch Nails has always been a supporter of sharing music via BitTorrent, even when it’s copyrighted. He isn’t frightened of talking about file-sharing. Back in May 2007 he admitted to sharing himself: “I steal music too, I’m not gonna say I don’t” he said. Later that year, when OiNK was pulled offline he admitted that he was a member there ,and said , : “If OiNK cost anything, I would certainly have paid, but there isn’t the equivalent of that in the retail space right now.”

The new Nine Inch Nails album including artwork is available for download on the official site, as well as on The Pirate Bay and other BitTorrent sites.

I’ve posted a copy of the album here. It is free to distribute but if you like it please support the artists. You can also get a lossless copy on the official site.

    In the awesome scheme of things you get a B- with regard to effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually lost me was on all the specifics. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more true in this article. Having said that, let me reveal to you exactly what did do the job. The writing is really persuasive and that is probably why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can easily see a leaps in logic you make, I am not necessarily convinced of just how you appear to unite the details which inturn help to make the final result. For right now I will yield to your position however hope in the future you actually connect the facts much better.
