Nirvana's 1993 album 'In Utero' will be re-released to mark its 20th anniversary on September 23.

A remastered version of the band's third and final studio album will feature 70 tracks including previously unreleased recordings and demos, B-sides and compilation tracks and live material featuring the band's final touring line-up of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl and Pat Smear. It will also include the Live And Loud show from Seattle's Pier 48 on December 13, 1993. A separate DVD release of that show will also be released on September 23.

The follow-up to 1991's seminal 'Nevermind', 'In Utero' was produced by Steve Albini over two weeks at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota.

Earlier this week, members of staff at US record label Sub Pop posed as Nirvana after a misguided fan of the band wrote to the label requesting that Kurt Cobain and co record a video message for a university football team in Virginia – watch it below.

An unnamed fan, who claimed to be the mascot for Virginia Tech, wrote to Sub Pop requesting that Nirvana "send a quick video" and say: "What up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you a Happy Homecoming week and good luck at the game this Saturday. Let's Go Hokies!" Not wanting to disappoint the letter writer, four members of the Sub Pop staff filmed a video of themselves giving the message and texted it to her. A screengrab of her reply to the label shows that she said: "You are the best, thank you guys, you are awesome," upon receiving the video.
