An individual release, and featured as a second disc on the deluxe edition of And All That Could Have Been, Still contains original instrumentals and stripped down versions of old songs. Trent Reznor has stated that some of the tracks on Still are evolutions of rejected themes that were originally written for Mark Romanek's One Hour Photo. Its availability has been on and off since its release, causing extraordinary prices on eBay at times. The tracks are currently available through iTunes and DRM-free at Amazon.com. The physical CD is still available from the merchandise section of nin.com. These tracks are done in the manner of similar ones performed at the The CRC Sessions.
Three music videos were made to accompany Still, for the new versions of "Something I Can Never Have" and "The Becoming" and for the new track "Gone, Still". They were all directed by Rob Sheridan.
This featured Trent Reznor, Danny Lohner and Jerome Dillon performing at Nothing Studios. The audio for "The Becoming" was the same as featured on the album, though the performance captured in the video did not synch up to the sound and is clearly from a different take.
Something I Can Never Have
This featured Trent Reznor and Jerome Dillon performing in the living room of Reznor's former home in New Orleans. The performance in this video is not the same as featured on the album. Both the audio and video were recorded solely for this release, though the audio take here is very similar to what was used on the album.
The only new song on the release to get a video, this again featured Trent Reznor and Jerome Dillon, performing in the same room as "Something I Can Never Have", with a wind machine in place. Like SICNH, the audio for the video is not the same as on the album and bears more differences than SICNH does.
In late November 2009, Trent Reznor began selling off touring and studio equipment through the eBay account ningear. Several items in the first wave of the auction were spotted as having been used in the recording of Still. The guitar played by Danny Lohner in "The Becoming" is a Takamine acoustic/electric guitar serial number 93040621. Trans wine/cherry finish, featuring a built-in 'accuAcoustic' EQ.
A La Patrie "concert" nylon string acoustic/electric guitar, equipped with a EPM Quantum EQ was used in the recording of "Gone, Still" as well as "Something I Can Never Have."
