The director's cut of Nirvana's 'Heart-Shaped Box' video has been made viewable online for the first time.

The video, directed by Anton Corbjin, remains largely the same as the original but with more focus on the obese woman and the young girl dressed in robes three quarters of the way through the track. The video was first made available as part of Corbijn’s Director’s Series DVD in 2005 but has not been available to view online until now. Scroll down to watch.

Corbijn's video has emerged as part of the reissue of Nirvana's 'In Utero', which features 'Heart-Shaped Box'. A remastered version of the iconic grunge band's third and final studio album is being released to mark its 20th anniversary on September 23. It 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, Dave Grohl and Pat Smear.

Steve Albini, the producer of Nirvana's polarising 1993 LP recently branded those who criticised the album upon its release "parasites". 'In Utero' was significantly more raw and abrasive-sounding than its predecessor, 1991's 'Nevermind', and some fans and critics felt this was a wrong turn for the band - something which evidently hit a nerve with Albini.
