I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Saul Williams, but those of you who aren’t most certainly should be. I’m sure that we’re all familiar with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, though.
So, here’s the back story: Saul Williams is a multi-talented musician with a poetic and philosophical agenda. Trent Reznor is “the king of emo,” and in all likeliness, a depressed synthesizer. Reznor played an integral hand in Williams latest effort, The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!. This was released as a free MP3 download from his official website, though after 100,000 downloads it is no longer free, but only $5.00 USD, and very much worth it!
Trent Reznor has now released the first disc of his newest album, Ghosts I-IV, a four disc set, as a free download, complete with a 40-page PDF booklet covering the whole release and an extras pack with wallpapers, icons and other graphics. The MP3s are encoded at 320kbps, and are 100% DRM-free.
So, yeah. You’re welcome.
