If you haven’t already downloaded and listened to the new, Nine Inch Nails album The Slip, you should do that right away. They’re giving it away digitally for free, so you might as well. And if you’re like me and you just have to physically own the CD case and inserts, the album has just been announced to be coming to stores on July 22.
The album will be released as a 2-disc set and will be limited to 200,000 copies which will be individually numbered and will also come with a bonus DVD performing the material during rehearsals. On top of that, there will be a 24 page booklet and stickers. If you want The Slip on vinyl, you’ll be able to pick it up on Aug. 4th internationally and Aug. 5th in the U.S. and Canada. There’s no need to rush over to the site and download the free version (though you should), because Trent Reznor promised that The Slip will stay free as a download for an indefinite amount of time.
