Much like the Wu-Tang Clan had 36 Chambers, Nine Inch Nails has 36 new songs to unleash to the public. A couple weeks ago Trent Reznor posted a blog on NIN’s website that read: “2 Weeks.” Many fans speculated that Nine Inch Nails might be a releasing a new album. Well, the fans were right (sort of).
This week Nine Inch Nails released Ghosts I-IV via the internet. Is it a proper Nine Inch Nails’ release? I guess it depends on who you talk to. Borrowing a page from the Beastie Boys’ playbook, NIN’s Ghosts I-IV is an all instrumental album, which according to NIN is, “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.”
You can now purchase the entire digital album on NIN’s website for $5. You also have a couple other options: $10 for a 2-CD collection (doesn’t ship out until April though) or the $75 deluxe edition (with a fabric slipcase). The $300 2500 Limited Edition Ultra-Deluxe option has already sold-out (trying saying that three times really fast).
Ghostface Killah eat your heart out.
