Nine Inch Nails Thanks Fans with Free Album Download

Back in early March, Nine Inch Nails followed Radiohead into the world of pay-us-if-you-want-to digital downloads when it offered the first volume of a four-volume album for free on various torrent sites and charged incrementally to download the other three volumes.

Unlike Radiohead, which said that “In Rainbows” will be its only freebie, NIN has posted yet another free album online, Billboard reports.

“The Slip” is a 10-track album that’s now available as a free download in a number of formats from the band’s Web site. “Thank you for your continued and loyal support over the years – this one’s on me,” is the message NIN frontman Trent Reznor posted on the site.

Fans who want to pay for the record can buy it on CD or vinyl in July.
