Nine Inch Nails today dropped a pair of free albums, Ghosts V-VI, follow ups to their 2008 Ghosts I-IV releases.
You can preview them via the embed above.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
As the news seems to turn ever more grim by the hour, we’ve found ourselves vacillating wildly between feeling like there may be hope at times to utter despair – often changing minute to minute. Although each of us define ourselves as antisocial-types who prefer being on our own, this situation has really made us appreciate the power and need for CONNECTION.
Music – whether listening to it, thinking about it or creating it – has always been the thing that helped us get through anything – good or bad. With that in mind, we decided to burn the midnight oil and complete these new Ghosts records as a means of staying somewhat sane.
Ghosts V: Together is for when things seem like it might all be okay, and Ghosts VI: Locusts… well, you’ll figure it out.
It made us feel better to make these and it feels good to share them. Music has always had a way of making us feel a little less alone in the world… and hopefully it does for you, too. Remember, everyone is in this thing together and this too shall pass.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Be smart and safe and take care of each other.
Trent & Atticus
The albums are available now for free via the download page or the direct download link (.zip file).

Nice, but download doesn’t work
I also can’t download them. It’s been several days and it still shows that it’s processing payment (even though it’s free).
Just downloaded now. Excellent Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross soundtrack/ambient compositions. I expected more NIN style, but I’m more of a fan of their soundtrack work anyway. Thanks to Trent & Atticus!
Not a fan, but THANKS! Nice from them.
I was all above it! Now I’m down in it!
We’re in this together now…We will make it through somehow…
Download is not working.
You are supposed to fake a purchase, at least if you have a European IP. The site it sends me to is this: https://store-uk.nin.com/products/ghosts-v-together-and-ghosts-vi-locusts
my download from spotify did not work yesterday. I just got a new email from the NIN site and the files download perfectly. Thanks guys!!!
The link you receive after your free “purchase” does not work. So wondering how you get to managfe the DL.
I am already a fan of Ghots I to IV ! Thanks NIN for these 2 additional great albums
We added a direct download link. It worked for us immediately and no ‘purchase’ or form is required.
Came back here exactly for that.
