Nine Inch Nails have made their first brand new song – complete with Reznor vocals, “Discipline” available as a free download through the band’s website nin.com.
The track, mastered by Alan Moulder, who’s previous credits include Arctic Monkeys Favourite Worst Nightmare, was reportedly only mixed 24 hours prior to it’s US radio premiere yesterday (April 22).
Reznor, posting on his website about the first non-instrumental track to be released since parting with his long term record company last year, says jovially “Take your shirt off and dance to it! REMIX it! Enjoy.”
The band have been in the recording studio since the beginning of the month, and “Discipline” is the first track to emerge from the sessions.
Reznor recently released a 36 track instrumental double album called Ghosts, the first nine tracks were downloadable for free, with fans paying differing amounts for various packages of songs.
In his latest news posting the dark icon says he’s finally received the stock for the collectors editions of Ghosts, worth $300. He jokes about filming him having to individually sign them all, saying: “We’re considering a real-time live webcast of me signing 2,500 copies of the just-arrived, super-ultra-mega-deluxe GHOSTS edition all day Thursday. These really turned out great and I can’t wait to sign EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM.
Tantilisingly, Reznor also says that “We have some tour info coming… SOON (I know you love that word) as well as some other info about something else, too.”
The band’s website lists 25 North American tour dates, starting with the previously announced Pemberton Festival on July 25. The band are also due to play Lollapolooza on August 3.
