It’s true. There’s a chance that we might be hearing music from beyond the grave soon because there’s a forthcoming Kurt Cobain solo album.
According to “Montage of Heck” director Brett Morgen, a posthumous Kurt Cobain solo album is in the works. “We’re going to be putting out an amazing album this summer,” Brett Morgen said in an interview, according to Forbes. The album will be made up of previously unheard recordings from the Nirvana front man.
In case you didn’t know, “Montage of Heck” is the recent highly acclaimed documentary on the late Nirvana frontman’s life. 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.

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”.
Morgen also clarified that “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”.
Nevertheless, Nirvana fans, are y’all excited? A Kurt Cobain solo album? It’s about damn time!
