The popular and critically acclaimed Nirvana documentary Montage of Heck is headed for release in both video and audio formats.
The soundtrack to Montage of Heck will hit shelves on November 13, and will feature numerous demos and home recordings Cobain made before and during his time with Nirvana, according to Rolling Stone. Titled Kurt Cobain – Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings, the album will be available either on CD or vinyl, as well as digital download, with the major difference being the number of tracks. The CD features 13 tracks while the double LP vinyl features 31 tracks.
The soundtrack will contain Cobain’s cassette recordings of early music with bits and pieces of songs, demos and even lyrics that eventually made their way into Nirvana’s music.
The soundtrack accompanies the documentary’s Blu-Ray and DVD release on the same day. Available in standard and deluxe editions, the extra material contains nearly an hour of interviews, a 160-page hardcover book with additional interviews, a puzzle, a movie poster, postcards and a bookmark, along with the 31-track CD. For those who want a physical copy of the 31-track album but don’t have a record player, the deluxe edition Blu-Ray/DVD release will be the only way to purchase that particular CD version.
Shortly after releasing the soundtrack, a special 7-inch recording will be released featuring Cobain’s cover of the Beatles’ “And I Love Her” and “Sappy (Early Demo)” on November 20.
