Kurt Cobain’s cover of Beatles song ‘And I love Her’ will be released on 7″, with the B-side being the Kurt Cobain solo song ‘Sappy’.
Whilst there’s been no announcement from any official sources as of yet, a member of The Vinyl Collective message board posted a pre-order link to the vinyl. The link puts the release down as 20th November, which is two weeks after the DVD release of the Cobain documentary Montage of Heck.
Alongside the DVD launch of Montage of Heck there will also be an official album released on the same day. The LP is still untitled, but it is confirmed that it will be a solo album and promises previously unheard material from the Nirvana frontman.
The Director of Montage of Heck, Brett Morgan, talked of the accompanying album with Bedford + Bowery earlier this year. He commented that the album “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.”
For the filming of Montage of Heck Brett Morgan was given unprecedented access to Cobain’s storage facility, where Morgan combed through over 200 hours of audio including a whole trove of unreleased material. Morgan described the music selected for the LP was described as “from thrash to ragtime and everything in between”.
Montage of Heck also used a lot of this unreleased material throughout the film, including Cobain’s rendition of ‘And I love Her’. The DVD of Montage of Heck will be released on 6th November.
