‘Montage of Heck’ Director Brett Morgen Confirms Kurt Cobain Album Coming This Summer
When we put together the list of potential highly anticipated albums for 2015, it looked like a pretty impressive list. But there’s one more disc that hardly anyone considered happening — a new album from the late Kurt Cobain. According to Montage of Heck director Brett Morgen, fans can look for a brand new Cobain disc coming this summer.
Speaking with Bedford and Bowery about the possibility of more unreleased Kurt Cobain gems, Morgen revealed, “We’re going to be putting out an amazing album this summer that I think will answer that question.” The director went on to add that the disc full of home recording will “feel like you’re kind of hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington as he fiddles about. It’s going to really surprise people. Just to be clear, it’s not a Nirvana album. It’s just Kurt and you’re going to hear him do things you never expected to come out of him.”
Morgen had spoken earlier this year about the potential for unheard music from Cobain. He tweeted back in March that he had been listening to “a mind blowing 12-minute acoustic Cobain unheard track” that would be featured on the Montage of Heck soundtrack.
If you’ve not seen the Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck documentary at any of the film festival or theatrical screenings as of yet, the rock doc is heading to HBO for its television debut tomorrow night (May 4). So be sure to tune in and catch it. And you can prepare for what’s to come with this trailer.
