Previously unseen footage from Kurt Cobain film Montage Of Heck has been released online.

The film originally experienced a limited release in May but is back in US cinemas from today (August 7).

To mark the re-release, home video footage of the Nirvana frontman describe his stomach problems is available to watch below.

Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne recently dismissed Cobain's health issues, while also calling Montage Of Heck "90 per cent bullshit".

"Kurt also told me there was absolutely nothing wrong with his stomach," Osborne recently said. "He made it up for sympathy and so he could use it as an excuse to stay loaded. Of course he was vomiting — that’s what people on heroin do, they vomit. It’s called 'vomiting with a smile on your face'."

Watch the new clip beneath.



Meanwhile, a soundtrack for Montage Of Heck will be released later this year.

According to Billboard, director Brett Morgen has sifted through the late Nirvana's frontman's archives for home recordings and rare tracks. The soundtrack will be released in November.

The release will include recordings featured in the film, and it has been reported that other unheard material will also be included. Morgen describes the music featured as ranging "from thrash to ragtime and everything in between". It will also include "a sketch comedy routine".

Commenting on the soundtrack as a whole, Morgen said: "You really get a sense of how happy he was simply by creating himself. His lyrics are really playful, and, at times, you can feel his smile and warmth coming through."
