‘Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings’, a new album compiled from Kurt Cobain’s song snippets, demos, and “musical experiments”, is due for release on 13th November. The collection – available as both a 13-track standard edition and 31-track deluxe edition – will coincide with the DVD/Blu-ray edition of Brett Morgen’s Montage of Heck documentary.
“These are all just Kurt by himself with the guitar,” Morgen told Billboard of his findings. “These aren’t multi-track, finished songs or work-ups, but they’re extraordinary, and I think they provide a tremendous insight into his [creative] process. I think they further our understanding of Kurt, both as a musician and as a man.”
A 7” of Cobain’s cover of The Beatles’ ‘And I Love Her’ is also due this autumn, as is a “super deluxe” version of the documentary which will include the album, along with 48 minutes of interview material, a 160-page book featuring old photos, a movie poster, and more.
