New Kurt Cobain Album Features 31 Songs

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Hailed as one of the most innovative and intimate documentaries of all time, experience Kurt Cobain like never before in the only fully authorized portrait of the famed music icon in KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK. Acclaimed filmmaker Brett Morgen expertly blends Cobain’s personal archive of art, music, never-before-seen movies, animation and revelatory interviews from his family and closest friends. Wildly creative and highly praised, the documentary follows Kurt from his earliest years in this visceral and detailed cinematic insight of an artist struggling to come to terms and make sense of his place in the world. KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK, will be released by Universal Music Enterprises in multiple formats, including the Super Deluxe Edition as well as in Blu-ray, DVD and digital video formats. The soundtrack album, KURT COBAIN – MONTAGE OF HECK: THE HOME RECORDINGS will also be released on CD and digitally on November 13, 2015. A 2LP vinyl edition of KURT COBAIN – MONTAGE OF HECK: THE HOME RECORDINGS will follow on December 4, 2015.  In addition, a 7-inch Single featuring “And I Love Her” and “Sappy (Early Demo)” is also scheduled for release on November 20th.

KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK SUPER DELUXE EDITION and KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK: THE HOME RECORDINGS both include the highly anticipated soundtrack, an aural complement to the documentary in both concept and experience. Comprised from various early and raw cassette recordings made by Kurt alone, the soundtrack allows a rare, unfiltered glimpse into Cobain’s creative progression from early song snippets and short demos to musical experiments and ultimately, pieces of songs or lyrics that eventually appeared on later Nirvana albums.

KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK SUPER DELUXE EDITION will include the 2 hour plus, full-length feature film and 48 minutes of bonus interviews on Blu-ray and DVD, a 31 track deluxe soundtrack on CD and cassette, a 160-page hardbound book with extended interviews and images from the Cobain archive, a puzzle with a collectable storage container, movie poster, postcards and bookmark. The 31 track deluxe soundtrack CD is exclusively available in the Super Deluxe Edition and showcases tracks from the documentary including spoken word, demos and full songs.

KURT COBAIN – MONTAGE OF HECK: THE HOME RECORDINGS soundtrack will be released in two stand-alone physical formats: a 31 track deluxe album available on 2LP vinyl and a standard edition 13 track CD.  The standard soundtrack focuses on the music discovered on Cobain’s personal cassettes. The soundtrack will also be available in standard and deluxe digital editions.

The documentary, KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK, is an authentic and unflinching look into Kurt’s life, art and mind through his own unique lens.  Following Kurt from his earliest years in Aberdeen, WA, through the height of his fame, the film creates an immersive cinematic insight into an artist who craved the spotlight even as he rejected the trappings of fame. Brett Morgen who wrote, directed and produced the documentary began working on it in 2007 when Cobain’s family approached him with the idea and offered him unrestricted access to all of Cobain’s personal and family archives. The documentary features Cobain and Courtney Love’s only daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, as a co-executive producer on the film and includes footage from various Nirvana performances as well as unreleased home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals, demos, and songbooks.

The title, KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK, takes its name from a musical collage that was created by Cobain with a 4-track cassette recorder in 1988, of which there are two versions; one is about thirty-six minutes long and the other about eight-minutes long. Several of the film’s scenes were animated by Stefan Nadelman and Hisko Hulsing. The film was co-produced by HBO Documentary Films and Universal Pictures International Entertainment Content Group.

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, also internationally billed as Cobain: Montage of Heck, had its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It was released in theaters across the globe by Universal Pictures and premiered on television in the United States in May, following a limited theatrical run. Following its initial global success, ABRAMORAMA re-launched Brett Morgen’s critically acclaimed documentary, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck in select theaters across the country on August 7th.

    31 songs…. probably more like 31 very rough sketches and some junk with a few potentially good but low sound quality demos. Maybe I will be wrong but I don’t expect there will be very much worthwhile listening material from this release. I hope I’m wrong!

    • Corndog

      I don’t think that it is right to release this. I have no particular love for Cobain, but this feels like we are going through the pockets and drawers of a dead person, seeing if there is anything in there that we want to swipe.

      Who is to say whether or not he ever actually wanted any of these songs released? Perhaps they were for his own personal enjoyment? Certainly he would hardly have wanted them released if they are in a very preliminary, unfinished state. It just feels disrespectful to me.

        Does the Corndog ever do the eating of corn dogs? They be shit.

        • God

          Corndog is what i call my dog’s pecker

          • http://Boom.com Boom

            Boom dig the Corndog commenter. While this make Boom laugh hard and make balls clench, this is request from Boom, the God go to a Corndog comment and just make the nice words. Boom, God, Corndog, the Shane are only cool human here and must all get along.

            Boom out!!

          • Corndog

            I told you that God guy was an asshole….always with the smartass comments about other users. Rarely actually says anything about the articles. He actually reminds me of your old nemesis Dave Brookes a little.

            Adding nothing to the discussion, so his comment has been deleted.

          • God

            Sorry Corndog

          • http://Boom.com Boom

            The good deed done good.

        • Corndog

          Never even seen one. I don’t think they have them in my country.

      • Ben

        100% Agreed! It shouldn’t be released.

        People will either crawl all over it or moan that it doesn’t sound like…..

      • Hwang Sunghyeop

        Corndog I think you’re right. If it was the album that Kurt want to release, then it might be good.

    • http://Boom.com Boom

      It be the 31 pile of shit.

      • Ben

        I’m convinced Boom is correct!

        • http://Boom.com Boom

          Boom convinced that music people never have no intention of releasing all work and demos. The Kurdt demos will be spoken word shit and bad guitars. This record is cash grab by lawyers and scab sponges. Boom also convinced the Ben be smart.

  • Hwang Sunghyeop

    steal my wallet. that’ okay. I knew that way is sometimes bad for dead man.
    howerver Kurt’s music is one of curious things in my life absolutely.

    • http://Boom.com Boom

      The Wang. Save the money.

      • Hwang Sunghyeop

        Yep I think it could be another bad case of Nirvana legarcy like Sliver(2005). Hopely it would have the quality as WTLO (2004).

        • http://Boom.com Boom

          The

  • http://Boom.com Boom

    It going to be pure shit. They do the milk job of te dead junkie. The music artist no never wanting every note and every ‘demo’ releSed. This be the biggest cash of grabbing ever.

    Nirvana be the good band many year ago but Boom never feel they great band. Boom also feel that the Kurdt just be the over rated junkie Fuck.

    Boom out!!

    • http://Boom.com Boom

      Boom seem like very smart human.

    • Corndog

      I also agree that they were good, but at no point were they a great band.

      It’s almost tantamount to heresy to say that these days though as he has been put on such a high pedestal by most people.
