Nine Inch Nails Free of Label Constraints After Release Of Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D November 20
Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor has gladly announced that he is label-free as of October 8, saying "I've waited a LONG time to be able to make the following announcement: as of right now Nine Inch Nails is a totally
free agent, free of any recording contract with any label." On November 20, Reznor will release Halo 25, Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D (Year Zero Remixed) (read a review of Year Zero), which will free him from his long relationship with Interscope Records.
In recent months, Reznor has been quite vocal about his distaste for labels in general, loudly complaining about the high costs of Year Zero in Australia, Interscope's griping about the leaking of tracks from the album, and so on.
Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D will be available digitally (iTunes and Amazon), on vinyl, and on CD. Reznor personally recommends the six-panel gatefold vinyl jacket vinyl edition for its aesthetic appeal. The CD/DVD-ROM edition will come with multi-tracks in GarageBand and Ableton Live format as well as generic WAVE form.
