Over 200 hours worth of recordings were discovered while researching the Nirvana frontman documentary
The director of Kurt Cobain documentary Montage Of Heck has revealed that there are plans to release an album of the late Nirvana frontman’s solo recordings this summer.
Brett Morgen (pictured right) discovered over 200 hours worth of material Cobain recorded while researching his film, which was released earlier this year. Speaking to US publication Bedford + Bowery in a new interview, Morgen said that an album length release from this material will be released in the coming months.
Speaking about the recordings, which included demo tapes, Beatles covers, spoken word tracks and jams with both Nirvana and Courtney Love across some 107 cassette tapes, Morgen said: “”We’re going to be putting out an amazing album this summer that I think will answer that question.” He clarified that the album “will feel like you’re kind of hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington as he fiddles about. It’s going to really surprise people.”
However, Morgen was keem to stress that: “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.”
Cobain: Montage of Heck was screened at the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles last week, with daughter Frances Bean Cobain delivering an impromptu speech at the event.
The film will receive its US television premiere on HBO on May 4.
