Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) out of recording contract

October 10, 2007
From the blog:
Hello everyone. 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. I have been under recording contracts for 18 years and have watched the business radically mutate from one thing to something inherently very different and it gives me great pleasure to be able to finally have a direct relationship with the audience as I see fit and appropriate. Look for some announcements in the near future regarding 2008. Exciting times, indeed.
Congrats to Trent! Keep making albums and I'll keep buying them! Trent Reznor Now Free To Distribute His Albums Any Way He Damn Well Pleases [Idolator]
