A Kurt Cobain solo album from beyond the grave might soon be forthcoming, according to the director of Montage of Heck — the recent highly acclaimed documentary on the artist and Nirvana front man’s life.
“We’re going to be putting out an amazing album this summer,” Brett Morgen said in an interview, according to Forbes.
Morgen went through over 200 hours of audio while putting his film together, and says the album that will result from some of the recordings he came across will give fans the feeling of “hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington, as he fiddles about.”
The film, co-produced by Cobain’s daughter Francis Bean and featuring never-before-seen footage of the family, debuted on HBO earlier this week but has been doing the rounds at various film festivals. It has been widely praised for its portrayal of Cobain, who committed suicide at the age of 27 in 1994.
