Nirvana: Kurt Cobain biopic and home recordings due this fall

Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s home recordings will be released this fall as the soundtrack to Brett Morgen’s documentary “Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck.”

Due November 13, both the film and “Kurt Cobain – Montage Of Heck: The Home Recordings” feature various early and raw cassette recordings made by Kurt alone, giving fans a glimpse into Cobain's creative process.

Named after a musical collage Cobain created with a 4-track cassette recorder in 1988, the package will be released in both deluxe and standard formats: a 31 track deluxe album available on CD, cassette, 2LP vinyl, and a 13 track standard edition CD.

The 31 track deluxe soundtrack showcases tracks from the documentary including spoken word, demos and full songs, while the 13 track standard soundtrack focuses on the music discovered on Cobain's personal cassettes.

A 7-inch single featuring Cobain’s cover of The Beatles “And I Love Her” and “Sappy (Early Demo)” will be issued Novmber 20 and the 2LP vinyl version of the soundtrack is due December 4.

“Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” will be available as a Super Deluxe Edition as well as in Blu-ray, DVD and digital video formats.

The project had its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and was released in theaters worldwide earlier this year.
