As promised by Reznor over recent months he’s making 36 new tracks available to the public after completing his obligations (save a future “Greatest Hits” offering) with his record label, Interscope.
Ghosts I-IV is available in many formats. He’s invested time and effort into the various packages that are available:
- FREE – first nine tracks of the collection. In fact, Reznor has put these tracks up on torrent sites as well.
- $5 – you can dl all 36 tracks offered in many different formats.
- $10 2-disc set – will be shipped on April 8 and those that purchase this package may also dl the album immediately
- DELUXE edition ($75) – shipping May 1st, purchasers will receive 2 audio CDs, 1 data DVD containing all tracks in multi-track format, 1 Blu-Ray disc + an immediate dl of the album.
- ULTRA-DELUXE Ltd. Edition – basically the DELUXE edition along with a 4-piece vinyl package w/ limited edition Giclee prints. Only 2500 available and will be signed by Reznor. (Includes immediate dl.)
What a great range of packaging! RED Distribution will also make available a wide physical release this spring. In the meantime, Trent is encouraging use of the music – including podcasting.
Note: if the NIN site is busy due to volume, Amazon.com’s digital store is another option to purchase the $5 package.
