With them being legends as one of the only things that Nirvana and Paul McCartney have in common, a lot of us were baffled over the whole Nirvana/Paul McCartney performance for the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert. Well, here’s the explanation: “Cut Me Some Slack,” the song that McCartney played with the surviving members of Nirvana for the concert, will appear on the soundtrack of Dave Grohl’s directoral debut.
Nirvana recorded Nevermind at the legendary Sound City (also the title of Grohl’s film), a recording studio in Van Nuys, California. The soundtrack will also feature collaborations between Grohl and Stevie Nicks, Cheap Trick, and Trent Reznors, among others. Sound City will premiere at Sundance Film Festival, but you’ll be able to watch it come February 1st through download/stream and in theatres. Take a look at the tracklist as well as the official Sound City: Real to Reel trailer below.
