A massive 30th anniversary edition of In Utero is coming out next month, but fans don’t have to wait to hear its 53 previously unreleased songs.
Over the weekend, two never-before-heard live tracks were shared: a live version of ‘Pennyroyal Tea’ from a set at Los Angeles’ Great Western Forum on December 30, 1993, and ‘Scentless Apprentice’ from a show at Seattle’s Center Arena on January 7, 1994, just three months before Kurt Cobain died.
The In Utero box set is set to drop on October 27.
Krist Novoselic spoke about the previously unreleased live tracks finally seeing the light of day ahead of the milestone anniversay.
“They need to be heard,” he said.
“Now [using AI], you can take a stereo mix and then break it down into a multitrack. So you can get really good mixes. They sound raw. And you get Kurt up there who’s just carrying the show. Amazing.”
