Download the New Nine Inch Nails Album for FREE!

Nine Inch Nails The Slip Album Cover

As the band's way of thanking their fans for their continued support, Trent Reznor announced via the NIN website that you can download the entire new Nine Inch Nails album “The Slip” for free.

Yes, you read that correctly. The entire album, almost 45 minutes of new music from Nine Inch Nails is free as in beer, yours to keep forever, 100% DRM free.

And this is no low-bitrate MP3. You can download the album in high-quality fully-tagged MP3 (~273kbps) as well as full CD quality FLAC or M4A for free. There's even a higher-than-CD quality 24/96 WAVE, also free.

As if that's not progressive enough, they top it off by encouraging you to “remix it, share it with your friends, post it on your blog, play it on your podcast, give it to strangers, etc.”

Kudos Trent. And thanks!

P.S. I've listened to the whole album and frankly it's not my cup of tea, but I was just so impressed by the offer that I had to write it up.

P.P.S. If NIN is your cup of tea, you might also want to shop for Nine Inch Nails concert DVDs right here on Jamtopia.

Download Somewhere Back in Time for FREE!

Somewhere Back in Time Album Cover

To help you sample the sound quality on their forthcoming album, Iron Maiden wants you to download Somewhere Back in Time for free starting on May 7th!

There are a few caveats... you'll only be able to listen to it three times, it's compressed audio (but still a respectable 320 kbps), and it's not compatible with Macs or iPods.

But caveats aside, you'll still get your hands on the album almost a week before it's officially released — at which point you'll be able to convert your trial version to a full DRM-free version.

Interested? Sign up now to get notified when the trial download goes live.

Don't miss Jamtopia's Somewhere Back in Time Capsule featuring 20+ years of great Iron Maiden videos.
