It has been a very busy end of 2016 for Nine Inch Nails who have released Not the Actual Events EP and have promised three releases for 2017: Broken (Definitive Edition), The Downward Spiral (Definitive Edition), and The Fragile (Definitive Edition).
Also newly announced was an upcoming four LP set titled, “The Fragile: Deviations 1“, which is comprised of various instrumental, alternate takes and such from the band’s 1999 release, “The Fragile“. That set will only be made available via a one-time vinyl pressing, although it has already leaked at several websites, publically.
“We want to present the catalog as it was intended to be, with no compromises. That means a careful remastering of the audio from the original sources, a painstaking recreation of the artwork, pristine materials, some surprises and an insane attention to detail that you probably won’t notice…but it matters to us. No extra bullshit and gimmicks – the ‘real’ records in their truest form.” ~ Reznor
