Trent tallies $1.6M in one week

After years of introspective and powerful work, Nine Inch Nails returned to the charts last week in a huge way.

Trent tallies $1.6M in one week

Released online to an eager fan base, "Ghosts I-IV" -- an entirely instrumental work -- picked up slightly under 800,000 downloads in only seven days. If you tally that up, it means that sales in the first week of release has brought in $1.6 million in sales.

Considering many wondered whether Trent Reznor-centric band still had the pull to generate big time album sales, these statistics are great news for NIN.

The CD version of the record lands in stores in Japan and Australia, April 5, while it does not arrive in America until April 8.

Nine Inch Nails' latest recording is without the help or involvement of their most recent record company, Interscope Records -- and actually without the involvement of any major label. Of course, without the need to pay a couple dozen middlemen along the way, hard-won profits can ooze into the bank account where they belong.

The first five tracks of "Ghosts I-IV" can be downloaded for free -- and for $5 the remainder of the 36 tracks are yours.
