2LP release slated for Black Friday release at indie retailers.
The 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s third and ultimately final studio album, In Utero, continues apace, as Record Store Day will see its 2013 Mix, mastered at Abbey Road Studios, issued as a 45 RPM 180 gram vinyl limited edition double album–cut to copper plates using the direct to metal mastering process, and housed in stunning alternate artwork exclusive to this release.
This 2LP In Utero edition is available for the first time on Black Friday via finer indie retailers, and was not included in any previous 20th anniversary configuration, although currently, you can hear the music itself is as part of the recent, and pricey, Super Deluxe CD box version of the In Utero 20th anniversary reissue.
The 2013 Mix finds original producer Steve Albini revisiting In Utero with the blessing and oversight of Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. With an approach described as more of an alternate snapshot of the same entity than a typical “remix” or “new mix,” the 2013 Mix coaxes forth never before heard nuances–and including unearthed alternate performances on some tracks–and finds incredible new sonic dimensions of the unwitting swansong of the single most influential artist of the 1990s.
