Nine Inch Nails releases Ghosts I-IV under a Creative Commons license

Eric Steuer

March 2, 2008

Some very exciting news for music fans: Tonight, Nine Inch Nails released Ghosts I-IV, a collection of 36 new instrumental tracks that are available to the world under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.

This music arrived unexpectedly as the result of an experiment. The rules were as follows: 10 weeks, no clear agenda, no overthinking, everything driven by impulse. Whatever happens during that time gets released as… something.

The end result is a wildly varied body of music that we’re able to present to the world in ways the confines of a major record label would never have allowed – from a 100% DRM-free, high-quality download, to the most luxurious physical package we’ve ever created.

We’ll have a lot more to say about this exciting development very soon. In the meantime, read more about the project and check out the music!

  1. I was amazed at the sounds of this recording. It sounded like some classic NIN.Only without lyrics. Hope to hear more.

  2. i hope nin spreads the word and gets more musicians to collaborate with creative commons. it’d be lovely to join forces.
