Disc one of "The Downward Spiral: Deluxe Edition" is a hybrid CD/Super Audio CD that features the original 14-track album digitally remixed and remastered in 5.1 surround sound. Disc two boasts 13 digitally remastered remixes and rarities, including demos for "Ruiner," "Heresy" and "Liar," plus an early version of the hit single "Closer."
The dual-disc version of the album sports the new 5.1 mix on side one plus a DVD with an image gallery, photos, a discography and videos for "Hurt," "Closer" and "March of the Pigs" on the opposite side. This edition will play in all standard CD and DVD devices.
In related news, the DVD debut of the 1997 home video "Closure" has been delayed, according to the Trent Reznor-led group's official Web site. The project is "tied up in legal problems at the moment and looks unlikely to see release until early 2005," according to the site.
Nine Inch Nails long-in-the-works new album, "Bleed Through," is expected by year's end but no release date has been confirmed. The set features drum work from Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.
