Discipline (4:18)

Cover of The Slip

From The Slip and 28 other releases

“Discipline” is the latest single from Nine Inch Nails, and is the fourth track on Halo 27, The Slip. It contains a beat reminiscent of “Only ” from 2005’s With Teeth and the lyrics seem to have a sado-masochistic overtone.

The song was released to radio stations simultaneously around 2:30pm EST on April 22, 2008, being mastered only the day before, and was then made available as a free download via the official Nine Inch Nails website. When downloaded, it comes with track art and a note found in the comments box of the song info saying “Go to www.nin.com on May 5”, which was the release date of the then-unannounced album The Slip. The lyrics are also contained.

“Discipline” is the first radio single from NIN since becoming an independent recording act, following their final release under a major record label, 2007’s Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D . Due to the advertisement and short notice of the release, the song was posted on YouTube almost immediately after release.

When downloading the song from discipline.nin.com, the process involved submitting an email address and a zip/postal code, opening the email and clicking the download link, then putting the token code into the website after clicking the link. A .zip file was automatically downloaded once the token and link had been registered. In addition, the multitrack files can be found at remix.nin.com.
