Nine Inch Nails have published another Creative Commons-licensed album for free online. The album is called "The Slip" and is available as high-quality MP3s, FLAC, Apple lossless and 24bit 96kHz WAV files. It's published under a Creative Commons license and distributed via BitTorrent. From the site:

"as a thank you to our fans for your continued support, we are giving away the new nine inch nails album one hundred percent free, exclusively via nin.com."


This isn't the first time NIN uses BitTorrent to distribute its music. The band uploaded a torrent for its previous album Ghosts I on sites like The Pirate Bay and What.cd. It looks like NIN has learned from that experience and fine-tuned its P2P distribution.

The new album is distributed via the band's own torrent tracker, and users have to provide their email addresses first to get access to the download links.
