Artwork Of the artwork, Rob Sheridan went on to state: "For Nine Inch Nails' album, we created logos representing each song, and embedded them in the MP3s to give each song its own visual identity when played digitally.

Although originally intended to be an extended play, the project was later expanded into a full length album. Recording took place over the span of three weeks, and is described by Reznor as simply "garage electronics".

Like Ghosts , the record was released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license via the band's website for no-cost, with a limited-edition physical version following two months later.

The Slip was well-received by critics, with particular praise towards its production and unorthodox method of release. Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor announced in that the band had completed its contractual obligations to its record label Interscope Records , and would no longer be working with the company. Reznor also revealed that Nine Inch Nails would likely distribute any future material independently. Reznor returned to writing soon after the release of Ghosts , and after a month of work, The Slip was recorded in three weeks of studio time at Trent Reznor's in-home studio.

Originally intended as an EP , in Reznor's own words "it just kept growing legs until it [became] what it is". Many critics noted how tracks on The Slip echoed musical stylings from the band's past, and that the record contained musical allusions to older Nine Inch Nails records. Anastasia Pantsios of the Cleveland Free Times said that " The Slip more or less sums up the terrain Reznor's covered in his nearly two-decade career", and went on to compare the album sound with the "edgy but irresistible beats" of Pretty Hate Machine and The Downward Spiral , and "the elusive atmospherics" of The Fragile.

Lyrically, Eric Harvey of Pitchfork compared "Discipline" to one of Nine Inch Nails's first singles, " Head Like a Hole ", saying "['Discipline'] comes from a long-established and now label-free artist trying to reflexively reassert his position in the pop landscape, on his own terms. In commenting on the album, Reznor has said that it derived from "a weird sense of being outside [himself] in isolation and watching [himself] getting older.

Like Ghosts I-IV , each track from the album is accompanied by its own graphic image, each of which consists chiefly of geometric patterns against a grey background. Reznor posted on the official Nine Inch Nails website on April 21 a message saying "2 weeks!

The lyrics for each track are embedded using ID3 tags, for viewing in supported media players. Like the previous Nine Inch Nails studio album Ghosts I—IV , The Slip was released under a Creative Commons attribution-noncommercial share-alike license, in effect allowing anyone to use or rework the material for any non-profit purpose, as long as credit is provided and the resulting work is released under a similar license.

Of the artwork, Rob Sheridan went on to state: "For Nine Inch Nails' album, we created logos representing each song, and embedded them in the MP3s to give each song its own visual identity when played digitally. Each logo played upon the meaning or title of the song, sometimes overtly, sometimes very abstractly.

The cover of the booklet is a new piece of artwork that depicts several light gray lines on a dark background the same color as the one for 1,, Five lines, two on the ends and three in the middle, all travel straight downward from the top edge to the bottom. Two more lines, in between the three middle and two outside, on each side, start straight downward, then slant inward, then travel straight downward parallel to the other lines before they would intersect the ones in the middle.
