The reissue of Nirvana’s 1993 album, In Utero, includes three discs and 70 songs that range from live cuts, unreleased demos, B-sides, and the newly discovered instrumental track “Forgotten Tune.”

According to Rolling Stone, the 20th anniversary deluxe edition, out September 24, features two versions of In Utero–the original remastered LP along with the newly remixed version of the album. The original Steve Albini-produced album will feature not only the original Scott Litt’s mixes of “Heart Shaped Box” and “All Apologies,” which appeared on the album’s final version. Instead, Albini’s brasher versions, which have been bootlegged over the years, will be on the album; they have never been released legally until now.

Disc one will also feature B-sides and non-album tracks like “Marigold,” “Moist Vagina,” “Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through the Strip,” The Beavis and Butt-head Experience‘s “I Hate Myself and Want to Die” and the No Alternative hidden track “Sappy,” along with Litt’s remixed single version of “Pennyroyal Tea.”

The never-before-heard “Forgotten Tune” is featured on disc two. The recently discovered track, which was recorded during an In Utero-era rehearsal, adds a little something new for all those fans out there who thought they had heard everything the band has to offer.

Eight out of the 12 tracks on the second disc are demos including “Jam,” a jam session from October 25, 1992 at Seattle’s Word of Mouth Production that feature very early iterations of “Tourette’s,” “Pennyroyal Tea,” and “Radio Friendly Unit Shifter.” All three of the demos for these songs are also included on the disc, along with Dave Grohl’s 1990 recording of “Marigold,” which was the drummer’s first ever solo recording.

The deluxe edition also includes the CD and DVD of the band’s live show at Pier 48 in Seattle, WA, which was originally broadcasted on MTV as Live & Loud. The DVD features not only the entire concert, but performances from the Live & Loud rehearsals, the band’s In Utero European tour with a cut of the band doing the Cars’ “My Best Friend’s Girl” in Munich,  and a director’s cut of the “Heart-Shaped Box” music video.
