My pal Ryan Grant who recently launched his music/culture site Here to Destroy, made a post about Nine Inch Nails’ recent endeavor entitled The Slip. I had lost track of NIN’s work in recent years but thought I might give the newest CD a listen, afterall it is available for free right here.

I plugged all the tracks into my iTunes and have been enjoying the album over the past week, but it wasn’t until now that I noticed every track on the album has it’s own artwork viewable in the small Selected Item window. Beautifully simple designs which combined create a consistent identity for the album and its music. The artwork above correspond with the following tracks:

1. 999,999
2. 1,000,000
3. Letting You
4. Discipline
5. Echoplex
6. Head Down
7. Lights in the Sky
8. Corona Radiata
9. The Four of us are Dying
10. Demon Seed

I have to give credit to Trent Reznor for constantly offering up new ways to distribute and present his art.

    Rob Sheridan designs a lot of NIN’s work. You should check out his work here: http://www.rob-sheridan.com/

    NIN was a band that I listened to in high school and I love that Trent is trying to changing the business model in the music world.

  3. Thanks for the plug Whites. I agree completely about the design for the album/tracks. Great stuff. The Trent Reznor Experience knows how to present himself visually in an attractive manner.

  4. I allways think images and images sequence when listening Trent´s work…
