Kurt Cobain was working on a solo album at the time of his death, it has been revealed.
Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson tells Fuse.TV that the Cobain record would have been Kurt’s “White Album” (a reference to the creative Beatles double album).
In the interview to promote his new book ‘Letters To Kurt’, Erlandson said, ““[Kurt] was headed in a direction that was really cool. It would have been his White Album.”
Cobain also covered a well-know song for the project but Erlandson would not say which one.
“That’s really what he was going towards, a solo album but working with different people. I was really excited about some of the stuff he was working on. I got to see him play it in front of me. That’s why I was really sad [when he died]. I was like, ‘Oh man, not only are you cutting off a life, but a message to the world, a musical path is just left with … Bush and all this other stuff [laughs]. He was cut short. Who knows where the music would have gone,” he continued.
There are currently no plans for the release of the Cobain demos.
