Song Credits



  • Ghosts I–IV



31 Ghosts IV

This is the only known version. Aggressive drums and guitar riff start the song. A distorted synthesizer plays, and drones fade in underneath, leading to a heavy guitar riff reminiscent of The Fragile-era songs. The riff ends, and synth noise plays in its place. The guitar riff re-enters, followed by layers of noise that build up and end abruptly, leaving a quiet drone that ends the song.


According to a nin.com post by Rob Sheridan, NIN played "31 Ghosts IV" live in Seattle on July 26, 2008. It then become a staple on the Lights In The Sky Tour, but was uniquely played as part of the main set rather than the Ghosts mini-set.

It was played as a one-off in Japan on February 26, 2014 - the only time a song from Ghosts I-IV has been played live outside of the Lights in the Sky Tour.

Differences in Artwork

It should be noted that much of the artwork embedded in the files of the official download of Ghosts I–IV from nin.com are not just cropped versions of the photographs in the PDF. In this case, the two photographs are completely different.
