The Kurt Cobain documentary which features voiceover from the Nirvana frontman himself is due to be released in the U.S. in October. AJ Schnack’s documentary film Kurt Cobain: About A Son is set to come to cinemas in New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle in early October.

According to Schnack’s blog: “The film will open in New York at the IFC Centre on Wednesday, October 3 at Landmark’s Nuart in Los Angeles on Friday, October 5 and in Seattle at Landmark’s Varsity on October 12. Additional cities and dates will be announced soon.”

The film sets impressionistic images of Washington state cities Seattle, Aberdeen, and Olympia to audiotape interviews of Cobain conducted by journalist Michael Azerrad for his book Come As You Are: The Story Of Nirvana.

An original score for the film has been composed by Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard.

The movie had its U.S. premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival last month.

The soundtrack, which features David Bowie, the Melvins, and Scratch Acid, will be released by Barsuk Records in the U.S. on September 11, reports The Daily Swarm.
