Don’t be surprised to see late Nirvana lead singer dominate your feeds in the next couple of days or so!
Kurt Cobain is back in the charts following the release of “Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings”.
The record starring the late Nirvana frontman has debuted in the #1 position in the Billboard Soundtracks chart, Billboard reports. It has also entered the Alternative Albums chart at #6 and is currently placed #11 on Top Rock Albums and #121 on the Billboard 200.
The album was created to accompany a documentary of the rocker’s life, “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck”, released this year.
In case you didn’t know, “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” is the recent highly acclaimed documentary on Kurt’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 year. It also made its rounds at various film festivals.
Wacth the official trailer below:
According to “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” director Brett Morgen, “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”.
Meanwhile, The Spectrum says:
Cobain probably never intended for these 13 tracks to be heard by fans. In some cases they are only the beginnings of songs – audio notes for future masterpieces. These are not necessarily songs even diehard fans are meant to listen to on repeat.
The posthumous album features previously unheard material, including a cover version of The Beatles’ song “And I Love Her”, alongside 12 other tracks.
