Kurt Cobain biopic features REM, Iggy Pop

Ben Gibbard provides original score

The soundtrack to the film ‘Kurt Cobain: About A Son’ will feature tracks from R.E.M, Iggy Pop and David Bowie as well as several other bands that reportedly influenced the Nirvana frontman.

The soundtrack, due out in the US on September 11 via Barsuk, will also include a new song by Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, who also composed an original score for the film along with producer Steve Fisk.
