Beginning today, anyone can download NIN's new album for free.
According to the press release: "Unlike NIN's recently released "Ghosts I-IV," there are NO paid options available for "The Slip," nor are there any retail partners. At present, "The Slip" is available exclusively as a free download at NIN.com. A physical configuration on CD and vinyl is in the works for a July release."
Since more major recording artist are releasing their music for free--in this case, an up yours to dubious, machinating music overlords--do you think we're close to universally free downloads?
