Unreleased Nirvana Recordings From ‘Nevermind’ + ‘In Utero’ Sessions Surface Online
A bunch of unreleased Nirvana tracks have just leaked, including alternate takes, mixes and demos from the band's Nevermind and In Utero sessions.
For the meticulous Nirvana fanatic, these are some new gems to introduce your ears too. Even on the 20th anniversary editions of both Nevermind and In Utero or the massive With the Lights Out box set, these certain cuts are not present.
A version of "Sappy" recorded at Sound City Studios during the Nevermind sessions was leaked. According to Alternative Nation, "Cobain played lead guitar while attempting to sing one live scratch vocal. He also made one formal vocal pass. After overdubbing the lead fuzz guitar with his Rat pedal, Cobain laid down his guitar and walked straight into the control room. 'I don’t want to do this,' he insisted. I’m not into this song right now. So let’s leave it.'" You'll also find alternate mixes of "Old Age" and "Verse Chorus Verse" recorded at Sound City.
From In Utero, we've got an instrumental performance of "Heart-Shaped Box" along with alternate demo mixes of "Scentless Apprentice" and "Tourettes," amongst others.
