This week Nine Inch Nails lead singer Trent Reznor released one of the bands new songs in Garage Band format. He wanted to let users play around with his tracks and mixing and see what the result was.
Was this a coincidence? I doubt is since the album is due to be released on May 3rd.
Was this a great way to generate buzz about the new album ? Yes! was and what a great way to allow your fans to play with the music and get an idea what the new album may be like. Absolutely ! Will this affect record sales? My guess is yes and I expect and in a very positive fashion.
