Normally, I wouldn’t post about Nine Inch Nails (because, to be honest, I don’t really like them all that much), but this is just too awesome.

Trent has decided that all future releases from NIN are to be made available to the public for free (and that concerts are the real way to go forward), and the first album made available for free is Ghosts I-IV.

Nine Inch Nails presents Ghosts I – IV, a brand new 36 track instrumental collection available right now. Almost two hours of new music composed and recorded over an intense ten week period last fall, Ghosts I – IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain.

Trent Reznor explains, “I’ve been considering and wanting to make this kind of record for years, but by its very nature it wouldn’t have made sense until this point. This collection of music is the result of working from a very visual perspective – dressing imagined locations and scenarios with sound and texture; a soundtrack for daydreams. I’m very pleased with the result and the ability to present it directly to you without interference. I hope you enjoy the first four volumes of Ghosts.”

They (as in NIN themselves) also distributed it via many of the famous music trackers, which is pretty awesome.

I think more bands should take notice of what NIN (and others, Saul Williams and Radiohead among the few) have been doing with their art.
