The 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind album is quickly approaching and bassist Krist Novoselic, recently perked the ears of fans as he teased the 30th anniversary edition in celebration of the milestone.
The group first released the legendary sophomore album on September 24, 1991 and saw it skyrocket to success soon after. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, more than 10 million copies were sold in its first eight years alone.
“We’re going to have the 30-year Nevermind, but we’re still putting it together,” Novoselic said in a recent interview with Uncut alongside drummer, Dave Grohl. When followed up with a question asking what it will include, Novoselic responded “What’s on it? You’ll see. I don’t want to spoil the surprise!”
Novoselic went on to credit the fans for their love and dedication, explaining the anniversary is for them.
“The anniversary is really for the fans and what the album means to them,” he said. “If it helps people make some sense of the world, that’s great. You have to figure it out for yourself, though.”
Twenty-seven years after losing their frontman, Kurt Cobain, Grohl revealed Novoselic and touring guitarist Pat Smear still get together for “jam sessions,” but have not done anything with the new music.
Could the 30th Anniversary of Nevermind be a worthy event for new music? Guess we’ll have to stay tuned.
