Unheard Kurt Cobain song from ‘Montage Of Heck’ re-release appears online – listen

Director Brett Morgen confirms the film soundtrack will be released on November 6

An unheard Kurt Cobain song has appeared online.

The previously unreleased solo track by the Nirvana frontman was added to the cinema re-release of ‘Montage Of Heck’.

Director Brett Morgen revealed last month (July 31) that he had added the new track to the film’s re-release. The film originally experienced a limited release worldwide in May and headed back to big screens on August 7.


Despite confirming the track’s inclusion, Morgen refused to state the scene that the untitled song was added to, hoping to avoid bootlegging. However, a fan has since recognised the new addition and uploaded a video of the track, which appears in the film’s closing credits.

As reported by Stereogum, the unheard Cobain demo is nameless. It is believed the track was recorded in 1991.

Director Brett Morgen recently confirmed the Montage Of Heck soundtrack will be released on November 6.

The as-yet-untitled LP is being labelled as a Cobain “solo album” and will feature unheard music from the Nirvana frontman. It will be released the same day as the DVD release of the biopic.


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 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.”
