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:
3. Letting You
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.
Dude i could not agree more , fantasic album and amazing artwork…. FOR FREE!!
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.
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.
I allways think images and images sequence when listening Trent´s work…
