Nine Inch Nails star Trent Reznor has become a rich man after netting $1.6 million from first-week sales of his new online venture. The rocker released his new instrumental album Ghosts I-IV in cyberspace and 800,000 fans paid anything from $1 to full price and beyond to download the tracks.
The $1.6 million windfall also includes online orders for album-related products like limited-edition vinyl releases, CDs, and a dual-CD box set.
Ghosts I-IV will be released in record stores next month.
