'''''The Fragile: Deviations 1''''' (also known as '''''[[Halo numbers|Halo 30]]''''') is an alternate take on ''[[The Fragile (halo)|The Fragile]]'' by [[Nine Inch Nails]]. It is due for a physical release in early 2017, but was released digitally in December 2016 to those who ordered the physical product from [[]].
On December 24, 2016, [[Trent Reznor ]] stated that: "When a track from Deviations says (Instrumental), that's because at some point that track had vocals on it. Those could be finished, a demo or just an outline."
On December 16, 2016 an expanded instrumental version of ''The Fragile'' on 180 gram vinyl was announced. Entitled ''The Fragile: Deviations 1'', it contains over an hour of unreleased material.
<blockquote>"A very special limited edition of ''The Fragile'' is now available for preorder in the NIN store. This unique version of NIN’s classic record was created by Trent Reznor and [[Atticus Ross ]] and features 37 instrumental, alternate and unreleased tracks, many of which have never been heard before anywhere."
Reznor explains, '''The Fragile'' occupies a very interesting and intimate place in my heart. I was going through a turbulent time in my life when making it and revisiting it has become a form of therapy for me. As an experiment, I removed all the vocals from the record and found it became a truly changed experience that worked on a different yet compelling level. ''The Fragile: Deviations 1'' represents Atticus and I embellishing the original record with a number of tracks from those sessions we didn’t use before. The result paints a complimentary but different picture we wanted to share.'
