The online release of the new Nine Inch Nails album, "Ghosts I-IV," resulted in just under 800,000 transactions in its first week, totaling $1.6 million in revenue, the band revealed.
Orders include free and paid downloads, as well as online orders for physical products like various limited-edition vinyl releases, CDs, and a dual-CD box set. NIN will not release traditional sales figures to SoundScan.
The $10 dual-CD set is scheduled for release in Australia and Japan on April 5, in the U.K. and the rest of Europe April 7, and in North America on April 8.
As previously reported, NIN released "Ghosts I-IV" on the net on March 2nd via the group's website. The instrumental album will see physical release via RED Distribution on April 8.
