Trent Reznor will reissue the classic Nine Inch Nails debut album Pretty Hate Machine on November 22. It's been fully remastered, from the original recording (which sounded pretty good at the time) into an all out party for your ears. I guess the proper title will be Pretty Hate Machine: 2010 Remaster. The album is available for pre-order right now.
"UMe and Bicycle Music Group managed to locate the original mixes, so I went in the studio with Tom Baker and remastered it for a greatly improved sonic experience. In addition, Rob reinterpreted Gary Talpas’ original cover to make for a fresh new package," said Trent in a message on the Nine Inch Nails web site.
What's more, Pretty Hate Machine will include Queen's "Get Down, Make Love," which was a pretty famous b-side to the 1990 "Sin" single at the time of the album's release. It was originally produced by Al Jourgensen. Rob Sheridan has updated the original album artwork to look more modern.
It was a struggle for Trent Reznor to acquire the masters from Rykodisc Records, who had received them in the demise of TVT Records, the original label to release Pretty Hate Machine.
