Trent Reznor releases five "Social Network" songs free ahead of soundtrack drop date
Bless Trent Reznor, for he puts it out plain.
The Nine Inch Nails frontman and "The Social Network" score co-composer has posted a very easy-to-use site for obtaining that movie's soundtrack -- a five song sampler of which can be downloaded now for the price of your email address.
The set is due Sept. 28 and will come in three different forms: standard, Blu-Ray and Vinyl. Those who pre-order will receive the full album digitally on that date. Standalone mp3s can be bought for 48 hours starting the day of the release via Amazon for $2.99; after that, all digital purchases can be made through the site.
"Musically, this all came out of our secret laboratory - electronic in basis, but mostly organic sounding. Lots of experiments and emphasis on sound fraying around the edges while focusing on the proper emotional tone for the various scenes," Reznor says in a post. "My agenda was to be able to offer this for the lowest possible price and this was the best way to achieve that. Amazon has been a great partner with past projects and I appreciate your understanding."
And judging from the tracklist, there seem to be no Facebook-oriented puns in the titles.
As previously reported, Reznor teamed with frequent collaborator Atticus Ross to complete the score to "The Social Network."
