Demos, concert film and rare photos feature in special 20th anniversary edition of seminal LP
Full details of the 20th anniversary version of Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ album have been announced.
The Super Deluxe Edition, which is due to be released on September 19, will come with a raft of rarities and remixes across its four CDs and one DVD.
These include the full remastered album, accompanying studio and live B-sides, rehearsal takes and the first full official release of producer Butch Vig‘s pre-album demos recorded at Smart Studios.
A new perspective on the album is offered in the form of the ‘Devonshire Mixes’ – a Vig mix of the album that differs to original mixer Andy Wallace‘s version.
Live recordings of BBC sessions and the band’s 1991 show at the Paramount Theatre in hometown Seattle – the only known Nirvana gig shot to film – are also included, along with a 90-page bound book of rare photos and artefacts from the ‘Nevermind’ era.
Only 10,000 copies of the Super Deluxe Version of the album will be released in North America, with another 30,000 for the rest of the world, including the UK.
‘Nevermind’ has sold over 30 million copies in the two decades since its release. It was the second studio album from Nirvana, the iconic grunge band made up of the late Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Foo Fighters mainman Dave Grohl.
The 20th anniversary of ‘Nevermind’ will also be marked by a series of as-yet-unannounced events.
