Nirvana's 'In Utero' Set for Extensive Reissue
The 1993 album spawned hit singles "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies."
The swan song from quite possibly the most influential band of the last 25 years will be receiving the reissue treatment this fall on a multiformat release. In commemoration of its 20th anniversary, Universal Music Enterprises will re-release In Utero with a slew of sonic goodies for fans on September 24.
Along with buying newly remastered CD and digital versions of the polarizing 1993 release, which included hits like "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies," fans can also purchase a three-CD and DVD combo that contains more than 70 previously unreleased demos, live recordings, rarities and B-sides.
The bonus DVD from the deluxe package, which also can be purchased separately, will include the previously unreleased footage of the band's 1993 Live and Loud show from Seattle's Pier 48. It will also contain never-before-seen bonus footage from the band's illustrious but tragically short career.
Since Kurt Cobain's untimely death in 1994 at the age of 27, Nirvana's surviving members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl have made a handful of appearances together. Most recently, the duo, along with guitarist Pat Smear -- who played with both Nirvana and Grohl's rock powerhouse Foo Fighters -- shared the stage with musical colossus Paul McCartney. The reunited grunge legends backed up McCartney on a song they co-wrote called, "Cut Me Some Slack," which was made for the soundtrack of Grohl's recent documentary, Sound City. The song was performed at a number of high-profile gigs, including Saturday Night Live, the 12-12-12 benefit concert, and for an encore at a McCartney concert at Safeco Field in Seattle.
