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.
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.”
