Industrialheads and general Nine Inch Nails fans can rejoice that the first major release of of the post-major-label-era has been thrust upon us with little warning and with great fanfare. Trent doesn't mess around.
With the title of Ghosts I-IV, we have been offered four volumes of instrumental tracks, in various packages of different prices. No matter what your level of engagement, you can get your NIN on at your own level of comfort.
This was to be the experiment that led to Ghosts: Trent got with Alan Moulder and Atticus Ross last year to impulsively create music over a ten week period. They brought in Alessandro Cortini, Adrian Belew and Brian Viglione, and as a collective they created daydream soundtracks for your mind.
With no major label tie downs like deadlines and corporate structure (the return of art!), they set out upon their experiment with the freedom to let it happen as it may. The only constraint they placed on themselves was to wrap it all up in 10 weeks, so as to not wander into the dreaded over masaging territory.
But why let the experiment end there? Ghosts is available in multi-tiered formats, based on how much you want to spend.
