Nirvana fans are in for a treat. The band split twenty-one years ago and their fans are still being treated to ‘new’ material. Of course, nothing new has been recorded since 1994, but demos, clips, and even a comedy sketch will be released along with the home-video release of Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck – a documentary about the band’s late lead singer Kurt Cobain that focuses on several aspects of Cobain’s life.
The tracks will be featured on the official soundtrack album for the documentary. Of the recordings, director Brett Morgen says: “To be clear though, these are not full songs, but rather rough recordings of Cobain playing. These aren’t multi-track, finished songs or work-ups, but they’re extraordinary”. The Montage of Heck home-video is due for release in November along with the aforementioned album. Additionally, an acoustic demo of “Pennyroyal Tea” and a demo tape from Cobain’s old band Fecal Matter have recently hit the internet, to the delight of all Nirvana fans.
