‘Super Deluxe Edition’ box set due September 24 via Universal Records
Nirvana’s third, final, and arguably best album, In Utero, turns 20 this September. Universal Records is celebrating the momentous anniversary with a robust reissue of the 1993 classic. On September 24, the label will unveil a “Super Deluxe Edition” box set featuring more than 70 remixed, remastered, rare, unreleased, and live recordings.
In Utero will be reborn in a number of different configurations, including a standard digital/CD remaster, a triple-vinyl LP set, and a four-disc version that comes with three CDs and a single DVD. According to an official announcement, fans can expect “a veritable treasure trove of never-before-heard demos, B-sides, compilation tracks, and live material featuring the final touring lineup of [Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl], and Pat Smear.” The upcoming birthday package also marks the long-awaited release of Nirvana’s complete “Live and Loud” show, recorded at Seattle’s Pier 48 on December 13, 1993. A stand-alone DVD release of the “Live and Loud” gig will also arrive on September 24.
