The film is set for a UK theatrical release this Spring
A previously unreleased 12-minute long acoustic Kurt Cobain track is set to appear on the Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck soundtrack.
Writing on Twitter, the documentary’s director Brett Morgen said: “Listening to a mind blowing 12-minute acoustic Cobain unheard track that will be heard on the montage of heck soundtrack.” Speaking previously to Rolling Stone, Morgen commented that the film’s score “is all unreleased Cobain music.” Pictured is an image from the film.
Montage Of Heck premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January but will arrive in UK cinemas this spring and receive its US television premiere on May 4 after showing at SXSW in Austin, Texas later this month. Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain acts as executive producer on the project. Montage Of Heck is named after one of Cobain’s mixtapes, which was circulated widely online in 2014.
An HBO press release says “the film provides no-holds-barred access to Cobain’s archives, home to his never-before-seen home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals, demos, personal archives and songbooks” and that it “features dozens of Nirvana songs and performances, as well as previously unheard Cobain originals”.
A track called ‘Flaccid Bone’ recently appeared online and it was claimed the song was hacked from Love’s own archive. It was posted alongside the caption: “She [Love] said this came from the early ’90s recording sessions. Supposedly Kurt hated it, and canned it. I mean no disrespect to Kurt, but this is coming out eventually. He hated several of his songs anyway!”
However, TMZ reports that Love – who part owns the rights to Nirvana’s music – with the “help of a real Nirvana member”, confirmed the song was fake. Consequence of Sound added that Love was taking legal action against the user who posted the song.
