800k Downloads For NIN Album In One Week
Trent Reznor, front man for Nine Inch Nails, is reporting $1.6 million in sales and almost 800,000 transactions after just one week of online sales. Hopefully this will encourage other bands to follow their lead and cut out the middleman.
On Wednesday, he reported 781,917 transactions, including free and paid downloads and orders of physical product. A $300 box set sold out of 2,500 copies within a day. Nine of the 36 songs were made available as a free download. The complete set also was available as a $5 download, a $10 double-CD and a $75 set with bonus visual content.
