Celebrate the Twentieth Anniversary of Nirvana’s In Utero with a Deluxe Edition of the Album and a Video of a Smoking Hot Girl Covering “Heart-Shaped Box”
September will mark the twentieth anniversary of Nirvana’s In Utero, which, in case you are somehow unaware, ended up being the band’s final album, before Kurt Cobain realized that he had married and impregnated Courtney Love and took his own life. To celebrate (the anniversary, not Cobain saying farewell to this cruel world), Nirvana will release a special edition of In Utero on September 24, which, a press release tells me, “spreads more than 70 remastered, remixed, rare, unreleased and live recordings over configurations ranging from a 3-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition,” which will “include a veritable treasure trove of never-before-heard demos, B-sides, compilation tracks, and live material featuring the final touring lineup of Cobain, Novoselic, Grohl, and Pat Smear…including the long-awaited release of the complete ‘Live and Loud’ show from Seattle’s Pier 48 on December 13, 1993.”
People who really, truly love Nirvana so much that they will purchase this: I hope it brings you lots and lots of joy. I like In Utero, but I can’t remember the last time I listened to it. Honestly, I hate to be a pig, but I’m just posting this news as an excuse to gaze at Jess Greenberg, a very beautiful (and possibly Jewish!) young woman (she’s eighteen, I’m totally allowed to say that and only be a mostly-creep) who recently covered “Heart-Shaped Box”:
Bravo, Ms. Greenberg! Encore! Encore!
