Illustration for article titled Nine Inch Nails Releases Free Album In High Definition Audio

Tren Reznor is not only breaking the old distribution model, he's even breaking the newest, like Radiohead's pay-what-you-want: Nine Inch Nails' latest album—The Slip—is 100% free, no payment required in any case, not even when you download the whooping 1.2GB version—which includes high definition WAVE 24/96 files (better-than-CD-quality 24bit 96kHz audio.) You can also choose from high-quality MP3s, FLAC lossless and M4A lossless. Note to record labels: drop dead. [NIN]

@Dirk: Whether we want to admit it or not, there is a large number of human beings (insert your guess of the percentage) that will take the 'free' option and justify it to themselves by saying they do not want to support X company. The fact is, if you do not like the tactics of the RIAA — then do not consume music. That will have a more profound impact than breaking copyrights. But, many people are not willing to give anything up — and they have a great justification for their deeds.

All that said — kudos to NIN for allowing us to get their music and bucking the RIAA. It is nice when we can have our cake and ravenously consume it.
