On November 13 Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings, a collection of Kurt Cobain demos, is being released. It ties into the documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which aired on HBO earlier this year, as well as screening in theaters. Now a track from the album, an early demo of Nirvana’s “Been a Son,” has been shared. The song was originally released in two different versions, one on 1989’s Blew EP and another on 1992’s Incesticide compilation. The less than 90-second demo is very rough, just Cobain strumming an unplugged electric guitar and singing nonsense lyrics to work out the melody. Check it out below, via Rolling Stone.
