Nine Inch Nails returned to record stores this week

Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto and The Orb's Alex Paterson and Andy Hughes are among the sonic sculptors who contributed remixes of NIN's "The Perfect Drug" to a five-song remix EP aptly titled "The Perfect Drug Versions."

Luke Vibert of Plug, Jonah Sharp of Spacetime Continuum, and Trent Reznor himself (with the help of Keith Hillebrandt and Brian Pollack) also rework the track, creating a collection that melds drum-n-bass, industrial, ambient, and jungle.

The EP arrived in stores on Tuesday, and will surely be as coveted among NIN fans as the band's many other remix EPs.
