Kurt Cobain solo album to be released in November
Universal Music is putting out an album of previously unreleased music from Kurt Cobain. The album coincides with the DVD/Blu-ray release of Brett Morgen's Kurt Cobain documentary, Montage of Heck, and includes all the music that was featured in the film, plus twelve additional tracks, "audio montages", and a comedy sketch.
The songs were found when Morgen was sifting through "hours upon hours" of Cobain's personal archives. “[It’s] curated to feel as though one were sitting in Kurt’s living room watching him create over the course of an afternoon,” Morgen told Billboard.
The album does not yet have a name. It will be released on November 6th.
Facts about montage of heck:
Brett Morgen began working on the film in 2007 when Courtney Love, Cobain's widow, approached him with the idea to make a documentary using the entirety of Cobain's personal and family archives. It was the first documentary about the Nirvana frontman that was made with the cooperation of Cobain's family.
The film's title gets its name from a musical collage that Cobain created with a 4-track cassette recorder in about 1988.
