Brett Morgen, the director of new documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, came across this cover of The Beatles‘ And I Love Her amongst the Nirvana frontman’s home recordings.
Morgen told Rolling Stone that “Nobody in Kurt’s life — not his management, wife, bandmates — had ever heard his Beatles thing,” adding, “I found it on a random tape. It’s a Paul song. How’s that for shattering the myth?”
The ‘myth’ the director is referring to is that Cobain hated Paul McCartney, because he’d said exactly that.
The cover of And I Love Her is included in the film’s score. Montage of Heck is released later this month and a soundtrack release is expected at some point this year.
