A digital + "physical component" version was also offered through, with further details not yet known. This is the first release to include Atticus Ross as an official member of NIN.

The album was first acknowledged by Trent Reznor on December 17, 2016 in a post on

"It's an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record that we needed to make. It's an EP because that ended up being the proper length to tell that story".
