To accompany November’s home video release of biopic Montage Of Heck, there’s a Kurt Cobain “solo album” on the way that features previously unreleased music from the film. In the meantime, Universal have confirmed the release of Cobain’s cover of The Beatles‘ “And I Love Her” (which features in the film) on a forthcoming seven-inch. The track will be backed with “Sappy”, a Nirvana rarity. According to Spin, full details of the release will be announced next week.
For the making of Montage Of Heck, director Brett Morgen was given unprecedented access to Cobain’s personal archives, where he discovered over 100 cassette tapes of previously unheard recordings made by the Nirvana frontman.
“When I first heard it, I was in the storage facility and I had no prior knowledge of it. I put it on and I immediately felt like there was some sort of portal into his mind, like it was one of the most pure expressions of Kurt that I encountered — maybe more than in most of his songs,” Morgen told AFP.
