The upcoming soundtrack to the Kurt Cobain doc Montage of Heck will feature dozens of the Nirvana frontman’s home recordings. The album, Kurt Cobain – Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings, will be released on November 13th, ahead of a special seven-inch featuring his cover of the Beatles’ “And I Love Her” and “Sappy (Early Demo),” which is set for a November 20th release.
The full-length will feature early and raw cassette recordings Cobain made alone alongside snippets of early songs, short demos, musical experiments and portions of tunes and lyrics that would surface on Nirvana records. It will be available physically as either a 13-track CD or a 31-track deluxe album on double-LP vinyl. Both versions will be available digitally.
The record will accompany the Blu-ray and DVD editions of the film, Montage of Heck, which will also come out on November 13th. In addition to a regular edition of the film, it will also be available as a super-deluxe edition. The souped-up release will contain 48 minutes of bonus interviews, the 31-track soundtrack on CD and cassette, a 160-page hardbound book with extended interviews, a puzzle, movie poster, postcards and a bookmark. This edition is the only way to obtain the 31-track version of the soundtrack on CD.
One of the rare recordings was recently added back in to the theatrical re-release of the film this summer. Cobain likely recorded the untitled, previously unreleased tune around 1991 during the sessions for Nevermind, since the cassette also contained a rough version of “Old Age,” another song written around that time.
