For the past few months, it seems like there has been more Kurt Cobain news than ever before. After Montage of Heck—the documentary about Kurt Cobain’s life—was released in May, various previously unheard and unseen moments began to roll in. Previously unheard pre-Nirvana demos were released, rare photos were dug up, as well as solo songs from Kurt. Now it appears that even more music from Kurt Cobain is about to see the light of day.
Universal recently confirmed that they would be releasing a solo Kurt Cobain album. The release will accompany the DVD/Blu-ray release of the documentary. According to an interview with the film’s director, Brett Morgen, for Billboard, this full-length album is expected to feature some of the songs featured throughout the film, other additional tracks, as well as short comedy sketch that features Kurt voicing multiple characters.
Morgen revealed that the upcoming album will also include “audio montages” that were created by Kurt himself. As for the rest of the included tracks, “These are all just Kurt by himself with the guitar,” says Morgen. “These aren’t multi-track, finished songs or work-ups, but they’re extraordinary, and I think they provide a tremendous insight into his [creative] process.”
The album remains untitled for now, but is expected to be released on November 6.
