It is also necessary to note that Atticus Ross is now a full-time member of the band. Trent Reznor said the following about the EP:

“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.”

In other news, the band will also release a special limited edition four LP version of “The Fragile” called “The Fragile: Deviations 1.” This set will only be available once. According to the official description “this unique version of NIN’s classic record was created by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and [it] features 37 instrumental, alternate and unreleased tracks, many of which have never been heard before anywhere” Reznor commented:

“‘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.”

“We want to present the catalog as it was intended to be, with no compromises. That means a careful remastering of the audio from the original sources, a painstaking recreation of the artwork, pristine materials, some surprises and an insane attention to detail that you probably won’t notice…but it matters to us. No extra bullshit and gimmicks – the ‘real’ records in their truest form.”

Trent Reznor told Rolling Stone the following:

“Terrible news regarding James. I hadn’t crossed paths with him for some time, but always thought of him fondly. He was a fun character to be around, a solid musician and a genuinely good guy. Those of us from that era of the band have been sharing ‘James’ stories … lots of laughs and love and sadness. Wishing his family the very best.”

Woolley’s ex-wife also posted a tribute:
