New Cobain Track Unearthed

 

04 February 2002

A previously unreleased Kurt Cobain track has surfaced on an album by experimental Seattle rock band Earth. The Nirvana frontman contributed lead vocals to a 1990 song called 'Divine and Bright', finally available as one of four bonus tracks on a reissue of Earth's 1995 Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars EP. The disc was released by Philadelphia independent label No Quarter Records.

Label owner Mike Quinn says the EP won't come with a sticker announcing Cobain's participation. "I don't want to exploit it," he says. "I think it would be disrespectful. I put out the disc as an Earth record, and I want to sell it as an Earth record." Earth singer Dylan Carlson agrees: "If people buy it 'cause they're some Kurt-worshipping type and it makes them happy to have one more track with him on it, that's fine, but people who like Earth will buy it for Earth."
