Kurt Cobain documentary adds companion book

“Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck”, the new documentary about the late Nirvana frontman that will premiere on HBO this spring, will also be spun-off into a companion book of the same name.

Rolling Stone reports Insight Editions will publish a book that will feature "a mixture of animation stills, rare photography and other treasures from Kurt Cobain's personal archive."

The book will also include extended transcripts of the exclusive interviews featured in the film, plus director Brett Morgen's own personal thoughts on creating the first Cobain film made with cooperation from the late singer's family.

Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean, is serving as executive producer on the project, which is billed as a raw and visceral journey through the singer’s life, providing no-holds-barred access to his archives – home to his never-before-seen home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals, demos, personal archives, family archives and songbooks.

The film will feature dozens of Nirvana songs and performances as well as previously unheard Cobain originals.

“Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck” will debut at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24 and premiere on HBO on May 4.

Cobain and Nirvana were inducted into the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame last April.
