Nine Inch Nails do a ‘Radiohead’

Saul Williams collaboration is available to download for free

Nine Inch Nails have followed Radiohead’s recent unique release of ’In Rainbows’ by giving their latest album away free.

Frontman Trent Reznor’s collaboration with Saul Williams, ‘The Inevitable Rise And Liberation Of Niggy Tardust’, is available to download via for free from November 1.

Speaking about the way the album is being distributed on NIN.COM, Reznor said: “There are obvious similarities in how Radiohead just released their new record and they way we’ve chosen to. After thinking about this way too much, I feel we’ve improved upon their idea in a few ways that benefit you, the consumer.

“You obviously will be the judge of this in the end. One thing that is very different in our situation is that Saul’s not the household name (yet!) that Radiohead is, and that means we need your support on this more than ever.”
