NME.com is reporting that the long-awaited NIRVANA box set, “With the Lights Out”, will feature 68 previously unreleased recordings.
Released on November 23 (one day earlier internationally), the four-disc set will feature 81 tracks including 68 previously unreleased recordings — rehearsals, outtakes, late NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain’s home demos, as well as a DVD which is confirmed to have unreleased band home movies, live footage, rehearsal footage and 20 full-length video performances. A 60-page booklet will accompany the release.
The title is a reference to a lyric in “Smells Like Teen Spirit”.
A source told NME.com: “I’ve seen some of the footage and it’s amazing stuff. There’s a video of them performing at a friend’s party with Kurt reading lyrics off a sheet of paper on the wall, footage of them covering ‘Seasons In the Sun’ in a studio with Kurt on drums and lots of other great stuff.”
The artwork for the set is currently being put together, with the likely choice being a “landscape” box.
