Solo Kurt Cobain Album Coming This Summer

Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck has been buzzing in hype since it debuted at Sundance earlier this year. Director Brett Morgan began work on the documentary in 2007 after gaining access to a large archive of memorabilia ranging from home videos to artwork to unreleased tracks, due in part to cooperation between the director, Cobain’s widow Courtney Love, and other family members. It’s no surprise, then, that Montage of Heck has been highly anticipated within many circles. Even then, nothing would excite Nirvana fans more than the announcement of new, official songs by the enigmatic musician.

During an interview with Bedford + Bowery, Morgan revealed that a solo Kurt Cobain album will be released this summer:

[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.

The album will be the first official collection of new music from Cobain since 2002’s “You Know You’re Right.” Whether the untitled album will do justice to Kurt’s legacy or be seen as an exploitative cash cow remains to be seen. However, one thing is clear: 2015 just may have become the year of Kurt Cobain’s return… for better or worse.
