Recoiled is a remix EP by Coil and Nine Inch Nails. It was released on February 24, 2014, via British record label Cold Spring. It was released posthumously after the deaths of the two original Coil members, Peter Christopherson and John Balance.[1][2][3]

The EP contains four rare remixes of Nine Inch Nails songs, which surfaced on Internet in 2013 as a bootleg. The songs that are remixed include "Gave Up", from Broken EP (1992) and "Closer", "The Downward Spiral" and "Eraser", from The Downward Spiral (1994). The CD and vinyl version of the album features a previously unheard remix of the song "Eraser".[1][4]

The original bootleg for the EP was also streamed on Youtube, with the title Uncoiled.[1][4]

Background[edit]

In a press release, the label stated:

These five lengthy compositions are pre-Ableton/laptop generation type priest song creations... with the use of baby alarms and numerous wires to create bespoke effects. These legendary tracks were always rumored to exist and, only the due diligence of a dedicated NIN forum who hunted them down, are released/unleashed for your listening pleasure.[3][1][4]
