Nine Inch Nails regalan por sorpresa la continuación de «Ghosts»

Más de una década después del lanzamiento de «Ghosts I-IV», concretamente doce años más tarde, Nine Inch Nails han anunciado por sorpresa esta semana el lanzamiento de dos nuevas partes, «Ghosts V: Together» y «Ghosts VI: Locusts». En esta ocasión además ambos lanzamientos están disponibles para la descarga gratuita en la página web oficial de la banda.

El anuncio corrió a cargo del propio Trent Reznor en las redes sociales, que comentó:

«Anybody out there?
New Nine Inch Nails out now. Ghosts V – VI. Hours and hours of music. Free. Some of it kind of happy, some not so much».

En la web de Nine Inch Nails se ha publicado un texto más largo firmado por Reznor y su socio musical, Atticus Ross:

FRIENDS-
WEIRD TIMES INDEED…
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.
WITH LOVE,
TRENT & ATTICUS

No es la primera vez que Trent Reznor y Nine Inch Nails regalan material musical en formato digital, aunque después vio la luz también en formato físico de pago, por lo que no es descartable que estos «Ghosts V – VI» también se publiquen en el futuro en LP o CD. Veremos.
