"I've have one record left that I owe a major label, then I will never be seen in a situation like this again," he says. "If I could do what I want right now, I would put out my next album ... you could download it from my site at as high a bit-rate as you want [and] pay $4 through PayPal."
He also discussed the massive digital campaign launched around the "Year Zero" album, saying he didn't want his label to have anything to do with it.
"I knew they wouldn't understand what it is," he said. "I knew the minute I talked to someone at the record label about it, they would be looking at it in terms of 'How can we tie this in with a mobile provider?'"
Reznor previously lashed out in a post on his Web site after he noticed "Year Zero" was selling for a substantially higher price in Australia than other new releases.
