Without any warning, always web-friendly industrial overlords Nine Inch Nails posted access to a free download of its complete new album, The Slip, on its website (NIN.com) this morning.
The 10-track album is available in several formats, including MP3 and high-quality lossless formats.
To download of The Slip, which will also be issued to retail on CD and vinyl in July, you gotta join the site and enter an email address, to which a link will be sent that will include access to all format options. All downloads will also include a PDF with lyrics and artwork.
In addition, Trent is giving away the multi-track files for the album, which can be reconstructed and then posted to his band’s remix site, remix.nin.com.
A post on the site from Trent Reznor says, “Thank you for your continued and loyal support over the years -- this one's on me."
