As a lot of us are sitting around, self-isolating, Trent Reznor releases two new instrumental works in his 'Ghosts' series.

As the news seems to turn ever more grim by the hour, we’ve found ourselves vacillating wildly between feeling like there may be hope at times to utter despair – often changing minute to minute. Although each of us define ourselves as antisocial-types who prefer being on our own, this situation has really made us appreciate the power and need for CONNECTION.

— Trent Reznor, Album release notes

Both come with a colon title - Ghosts V:Together and Ghosts VI:Locusts...

Ghosts V: Together is for when things seem like it might all be okay, and Ghosts VI: Locusts… well, you’ll figure it out.

— Trent Reznor

I've now found the starter to my Pandemic iPod playlist. Both albums can be downloaded for free.
