Nirvana’s official Facebook page have responded to the latest internet conspiracy theory that suggests frontman Kurt Cobain is still alive, over 20 years after his death.

In the video from 2012, singer Ramiro Saavedra was seen performing the track from Nevermind on Peruvian talent show ‘Yo Soy’.

'Montage Of Heck' Director Brett Morgen Defends Decision To Release "New" Kurt Cobain Album

Brett Morgen, the director of the Kurt Cobain documentary movie Montage of Heck earlier this year, has revealed the artwork and tracklisting for the “new” album Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings, which is released next month.

The filmmaker also took the time to defend the project from the criticism that it’s received from some quarters in an interview with Rolling Stone. “Just like The Bootleg Series furthers your understanding of Bob Dylan's process, I find that Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings furthers not just our understanding of his process but represents yet another angle, another side of Kurt — an artistic outlet that he was not necessarily able to work within the context of a three-piece band.”

Dave Grohl has revealed that there will be a second season of ‘Sonic Highways’. The Foo Fighters frontman confirmed in a video interview with the NME that the band will be returning for another series of the well-received HBO documentaries.

A picture taken by guitarist Chris Shiflett on Instagram, of an aeroplane embossed with the word 'Sonic Highways' and the band's logo, had caused fans to speculate about another series - and so it has come to pass. However, 46 year old Grohl remained evasive on the setting for the new series. “It might or might not be international. It might someday be international. It might only be England, or be England and other places, or maybe it’s places in America and people from other countries that are inspired by these places in America.”
