You can get the 1st cd for free. And all the 36 tracks for $5 @ 320kbps quality.

 

More info from the site:

 

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."

 

This music arrived unexpectedly as the result of an experiment. The rules were as follows: 10 weeks, no clear agenda, no overthinking, everything driven by impulse. Whatever happens during that time gets released as... something.

 

The team: Atticus Ross, Alan Moulder and myself with some help from Alessandro Cortini, Adrian Belew and Brian Viglione. Rob Sheridan collaborated with Artist in Residence (A+R) to create the accompanying visual and physical aesthetic.

 

We began improvising and let the music decide the direction. Eyes were closed, hands played instruments and it began. Within a matter of days it became clear we were on to something, and a lot of material began appearing. What we thought could be a five song EP became much more. I invited some friends over to join in and we all enjoyed the process of collaborating on this.

 

The end result is a wildly varied body of music that we're able to present to the world in ways the confines of a major record label would never have allowed - from a 100% DRM-free, high-quality download, to the most luxurious physical package we've ever created.

 

More volumes of Ghosts are likely to appear in the future.

Yeah, actually I forgot to mention you can get all the 36 tracks for $5 at any digital format, $10 x 2 cds, $75 x 2 cds/1 dvd/1 blue ray, and $300 (2500 copies only) for the whole last $75 package plus four-LP 180 gram vinyl set with photos/art prints books numbered and personally signed by Trent.

 

The site is taking forever to load. That $300 deluxe package looks fucking awesome.

Downloading now - definitely sounds interesting, and a pleasant surprise to just throw it out there without any advertising beforehand.

sounds like the fragile, witha teetha and YZ outtakes with some still-like piano pieces. pretty nice actually and hope to see more experimental releases coming from reznor, like the icy electronicky thing with a femal vocalist he was talking about around the fragile and more stuff like the still disc. sweet.

I'm a bit late about this, but I've been listening to it last couple of days, and I have to say I really love it, it's the best thing NIN has done in awhile... Great great release, and great way of promoting it, giving it away...

I still can't download, it just stays spinning on some 'authorizing payment' screen...

Same for me, I guess their servers are getting hammered. Try again later?

I thought it was an issue with Firefox containers, but it's not as I get the same from Chrome

It’s a direct download? I got an email a few hours ago and it just sends me to that spinning link
