Nirvana's final album, In Utero, was recently celebrated in a deluxe 20th anniversary reissue. Original producer Steve Albini revisited the album – with full blessings from bandmembers Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic – for a "2013 Mix." Audiophiles can get their hands on this reworking November 29th, when the modern mix is released as a 45 RPM, 180-gram limited edition double vinyl on Black Friday for November's Record Store Day. The record was mastered at Abbey Road Studios with alternative artwork specific to the release.

Q&A: Dave Grohl on Kurt's Last Days and the Making of 'In Utero'

Last months, Grohl reflected on the album's recording process with Rolling Stone's David Fricke. "Recording with Steve [Albini] – he would hit 'record,' we'd do a take, and he'd go [claps hands], 'Okay, what's next?' Wait, is it okay?" Grohl said. "We blazed through In Utero. I was done after three days. I had another 10 fucking days to sit in the snow, on my ass with nothing to do."

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
