Nine Inch Nails Surprise Released Two Free New Albums was a top 20 story of March 2020: Nine Inch Nails surprises fans in late March with the release of two new free albums, which are entitled "Ghosts V: Together" and "Ghosts VI: Locusts".
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross had this to say, "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".
