Kurt Cobain Beatles Cover to Be Released on Vinyl in November
As we previously learned, an album’s worth of Kurt Cobain rarities, which has been billed as a “solo album,” will arrive Nov. 6 in conjunction with the DVD release of Brett Morgen’s Cobain documentary, Montage of Heck, which originally premiered on HBO earlier this year. Now, the Vinyl Collective message board has brought a vinyl 7” featuring two Cobain rarities to our attention, too.
A Bull Moose pre-order listing has surfaced for the 7” and shows it as boasting Cobain’s cover of the Beatles’ “And I Love Her” -- which also showed up in Montage of Heck -- as the A-side. A Cobain original, “Sappy,” is listed as the B-side. The single is due out shortly after the Cobain solo album and Montage of Heck on Nov. 20.
Morgen says the yet-to-be-titled Cobain solo LP includes music from the documentary, the late Nirvana leader's home recordings and a sketch comedy routine. “You’re going to hear him do things you never expected to come out of him,” the director said.
A new cut of Montage of Heck played in theaters last month, and another previously unheard Cobain song ran over the movie’s end credits. Whether or not that will appear on the forthcoming solo album is unclear, as details surrounding its release remain scant for the time being.
