Cobain's take on 'And I Love Her' features in 'Montage of Heck' film
Kurt Cobain’s cover of Beatles song ‘And I Love Her’ is due to be released on vinyl.
The Vinyl Collective message board points to this pre-order link for ‘And I Love Her’ with solo song ‘Sappy’ on 7″. Cobain’s take on ‘And I Love Her’ first appeared in Brett Morgen’s documentary Montage of Heck earlier this year.
An official Montage of Heck album is due for release in November on the same day the film comes out on DVD. The vinyl 7″ is slated for release two weeks later, on November 20.
The as-yet-untitled LP is being labelled as a Cobain “solo album” and will feature unheard music from the Nirvana frontman.
Director Brett Morgen sifted through the extensive Cobain archives for home recordings and rare tracks while curating the album. Morgen previously told US publication Bedford + Bowery: “Just to be clear, it’s not a Nirvana album, it’s just Kurt and you’re going to hear him do things you never expected to come out of him”.
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 featured 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.”
