Nine Inch Nails' member Trent Reznor has been ranting on the band's website (http://nin.com/), and all but said they're going to follow Radiohead and release their next album exclusively online.
He said "Hello everyone. I've waited a LONG time to be able to make the following announcement: as of right now Nine Inch Nails is a totally free agent, free of any recording contract with any label. I have been under recording contracts for 18 years and have watched the business radically mutate from one thing to something inherently very different and it gives me great pleasure to be able to finally have a direct relationship with the audience as I see fit and appropriate. Look for some announcements in the near future regarding 2008. Exciting times, indeed."
The album is available for free but I would strongly advice to pay the $5 to support the artists. This would push other artists to do the same.
This is an album by Saul Williams (most known for his blend of poetry and hip-hop) and produced by Trent Raznor.
