The record will contain music featured in the recent documentary about his life Montage of Heck.

The film’s director Brett Morgen previously told Billboard the music has been condensed from 200 hours of recordings on more than 100 unmarked cassette tapes Cobain left behind.

Morgen was given complete access to Cobain’s tapes and diaries while making the documentary. The DVD version of the film will be released on the same day.

The director said the solo material is different to his work with Nirvana and gives “a lighter portrait of Kurt than one might expect”.

You really get a sense of how happy he was simply by creating himself. His lyrics are really playful, and, at times, you can feel his smile and warmth coming through.
