Free at last: Nine Inch Nails goes independent

Digg this shit! Trent just posted the news on nin.com and we're repeating it here, given the non-archival nature of aforementioned blog.
Hello everyone. I've waited a LONG time to be able to make the following announcement: as of right now Nine Inch Nails is atotally free agent, free of any recording contract with any label. I have been under recording contracts for 18 years and have watched the business radically mutate from one thing to something inherently very different and it gives me great pleasure to be able to finally have a direct relationship with the audience as I see fit and appropriate. Look for some announcements in the near future regarding 2008. Exciting times, indeed.

Indeed! Henk sent the news in, but Steve nearly beat him to the punch with an email bringing the news via HitsDailyDouble.
