UPDATE: In an interview with Bedford + Bowery, Montage of Heck director Brett Morgen revealed that a Kurt Cobain solo album will be released this summer. “The album of home recordings will feel like you’re kind of hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington as he fiddles about,” said Morgen.
Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck will premiere on HBO on May 4th, and in the latest clip from the acclaimed documentary, director Brett Morgen focuses on the relationship between the Nirvana singer and Courtney Love. In a new interview with Love recorded for the film, the Hole frontwoman discussed her eagerness to start a family with Cobain and how they would have had more children if they “had had more time.”
“Oh, god yes. Yes, we wanted to have a baby, and I conceived Frances in December. So I was pregnant when we got married, yes,” Love says in Montage of Heck. “We were all we had, so making a family as fast as possible was important. If I had had more time, I’m telling you I would have had more kids.” Although Love appears in the documentary, she had no editorial input in the creation of Montage of Heck, which Frances Bean Cobain executive produced.
After a run of film festival screenings, Montage of Heck embarked on a U.S. theatrical run April 24th, in part to make the film eligible for a Best Documentary Feature Academy Award nomination. Morgen, who revealed that the film would likely come to DVD in November, also promised that the Montage of Heck soundtrack would feature an unreleased Cobain acoustic recording, though details of that album have not yet been revealed.
