A Kurt Cobain Solo Album Is On The Way

it's called 'montage of heck: the home recordings'

Musical geniuses on the level of Kurt Cobain are often so prolific that it's impossible they won't leave unheard recordings behind after they die. So it was only a matter of time before a treasure trove of unreleased music from the Nirvana frontman made its way to the public—and that time is now. Thanks to Brett Morgen, who directed the vital Cobain documentary Montage of Heck, we'll be getting an entire album of Kurt Cobain solo songs titled Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings, on November 13.

We've already heard an unreleased track, thanks to Morgen's unprecedented access to Cobain's personal tapes, but The Home Recordings are said to include a wealth of new material—13 tracks on the standard edition and 31 tracks on the deluxe version, which sounds like it's worth the extra cost. The album will be available in CD, cassette, and digital formats and on December 4 as vinyl. According to a press release, the album will also include snippets, demos, "musical experiments," and material that eventually ended up on Nirvana albums.
