The Nirvana frontman may be long gone, but his music lives on. While making the documentary about Kurt Cobain's life (Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck), director Brett Morgan found boxes of the singer's unreleased music, which includes a cover of And I Love Her by The Beatles.

"Nobody had mentioned to me there were going to be videotapes or home videos there, so that was a big find," Brett recalled in a May interview with Bedford + Bowery of the time he went through Kurt's things in a storage facility.

"I opened up another box and there were 107 cassettes featuring over 200 hours of never-before-heard or rarely heard music – I mean I would lean heavily of the never-before-heard, probably 95 percent. And nobody had told me about that... So even though the boxes looked rather small they contained a treasure chest of material that would serve as the foundation for Montage of Heck."

Some of the music that was unearthed will be released in a 31-track soundtrack album for the documentary, which was released in August. Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings will be released on 13 November.

Listen to Kurt's haunting take on And I Love Her and another sombre spin on Nirvana's Sappy, the latter of which was released last week.
