Executive produced Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, Montage of Heck will give viewers an unprecedented look a the late Nirvana frontman's archives, including never-before-heard original solo recordings.

"I started work on this project eight years ago," said director Brett Morgen in November when Montage of Heck was announced. "Like most people, when I started, I figured there would be limited amounts of fresh material to unearth. However, once I stepped into Kurt’s archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4,000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media."

In addition to the documentary, a Montage of Heck book will also be released, including extended transcripts from the interviews Morgen conducted for the film.

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck will air on HBO later this year.
