NIN CD Nabs Millions; Inspires Digi Films


Posted March 14, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

Despite the album being widely available on torrent sites, the new Nine Inch Nails album, the 36-song self-released boxset Ghosts I-IV, has generated $1.6 million in sales revenue via 800,000 transactions in the first week of the album's availability, according to frontman Trent Reznor.

Of course, Reznor included free downloads in these figures, which are not being released to SoundScan in the traditional manner, according to Billboard.

Ghosts I-IV is currently the top-selling album on the Amazon MP3 store, where Reznor paid approximately $38 to have it distributed.

The collection has also inspired a film festival of shorts based on the music, to be held on the group's YouTube page, which went live on Thursday. The page will begin accepting submissions immediately through May 1. Music from Ghosts I – IV will be available for filmmakers starting on April 1 through YouTube's AudioSwap channel. Submissions will be personally reviewed by Trent Reznor, who will host a festival featuring the best entries at a later date.
