Unreleased Nirvana Song Leaked to Radio / Web
Los Angeles radio station KROQ got their hands
on the studio version of Nirvana's You Know You're Right and began playing
it over the air Monday night. Apparently the track was first leaked to
the web and that was how the station got their hands on it.
The song has reached an almost legendary
status that is comparable to the rumored lost last recording of blues
great Robert Johnson. It is said to be one of the last songs written by
Kurt Cobain before he took his own life in 1994. A live recording of the
song has been a hot item with Nirvana bootleggers but up until now the
studio version of the track had been kept under wraps and was originally
scheduled to appear as part of the Nirvana box-set, a collection that was
ultimately nixed by Cobains widow Courtney Love who felt according to
Launch Media that the, Nirvana legacy would be better served by the release
of a single-disc greatest-hits set before a boxed-set release.
As we reported last week, the Nirvana greatest
hits album is scheduled to be released before Christmas according to what
Courtney Love sold radio shock-jock, Howard Stern. However, Launch is reporting
the Interscope/Geffen has said that the inclusion of the disc on their
release schedule for November 19th was a mistake and have yet to announce
an official release date.
