Trent put a post up on NIN.com this morning announcing some really big news, he is now a ‘free agent’. Ive copied the text below (since no one knows how long that will actually be up on the front page).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.
This is pretty freaking exciting! I’m sure many people (myself included) somewhat saw this coming with the release of year zero. Its also pretty awesome to think of what he will be able to produce now, without some big corp CEO telling him what to sing.
