Nirvana‘s ‘Incesticide’ compilation is to be reissued on vinyl next year to mark the 25th anniversary of its release.
The collection was first released in December 1992, containing rarities, B-sides and demo tracks – as well as outtakes, covers and live radio recordings. ‘Incesticide’ also featured the song ‘Sliver’, a notable Nirvana non-album single.
For its 25th anniversary in 2017, ‘Incesticide’ will be reissued on vinyl to mark the occasion. The compilation will be remastered for the new double-vinyl, which has been specially done from the original analog master tapes by engineer Bernie Grundman.
The reissue will be released on January 13 in the US, with pre-orders up on Amazon.com now – the UK branch of Amazon does not appear to be offering the reissue as a pre-order just yet.
‘Incesticide’ was previously reissued for 2012’s Record Store Day, but only on a very limited basis.
The likes of David Bowie, Prince and REM join Nirvana in having one of their songs nominated for entry into the Hall of Fame next year, which qualify under the GRAMMY’s stipulation that the songs are “memorable and inspiring – these recordings are proudly added to our growing catalog and are an integral part of our musical, social and cultural history.”
