Nine Inch Nails' Elusive 'Quake' Soundtrack Gets Its First-Ever Vinyl Release
Nine Inch Nails' long-lost soundtrack to Quake is finally getting its first-ever vinyl release. What's more, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross's much-loved The Social Network is also being treated to a new vinyl pressing, which is being labelled the "Definitive Edition."

The announcement came today via the NIN website, with both OSTs now available to order.

Despite Quake coming out way back in 1996, NIN's soundtrack to the first-person shooter has never before been released on vinyl. To make up for that now, though, Reznor is giving it a sprawling 2xLP edition.

The Social Network will also arrive as a 2xLP set, which has been treated to some tweaked artwork. It should definitely come as good news for those vinyl lovers who missed out on the initial run of copies back in 2010. After all, those sell for well over $200 these days.

You can see the tracklists to both releases below. As you'll see Quake only takes up three sides, so it's unclear if the fourth is simply blank or maybe comes with an etching.
