Brett Morgen, director of the Kurt Cobain documentary Montage of Heck, announced that a posthumous album (also titled Montage of Heck), with music from the Nirvana frontman will go on sale in November.
While filming the documentary, Morgen says he found more than 100 cassette tapes of never-before-heard recordings made by Cobain before his suicide in 1994 at the age of 27.
Morgen says, “When I first heard it, I was in the storage facility and I had no prior knowledge of it. I put it on and I immediately felt like there was some sort of portal into his mind, like it was one of the most pure expressions of Kurt that I encountered — maybe more than in most of his songs.”
The Montage Of Heck director says that Cobain’s “solo album,” will be released as the soundtrack to Montage of Heck, which is being released on DVD around the same time.
Montage of Heck was nominated for a number of Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special.
