When a beloved musician dies too soon, fans spend the rest of their lives listening to the same songs over and over, wishing there was more. Nirvana fans can quit wishing. On top of getting Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, a documentary about the musician's life and art, they're also about to get a solo album full of unreleased music!

Brett Morgen, the documentary's director, was given access to a storage unit full of Cobain's paintings, guitars and boxes containing home videos and "107 cassettes featuring over 200 hours of never-before-heard or rarely heard music." And Morgen is planning on bringing some of that audio to fans this summer: “We’re going to be putting out an amazing album this summer... [it] will feel like you’re kind of hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington as he fiddles about. It’s going to really surprise people. Just to be clear, 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.”

All of the exclamation points and happy expletives! Celebrate by watching the trailer to Montage of Heck and heading to the nearest karaoke bar to belt out "Come As You Are."
