Dave Grohl and Krist Noviselic appeared on NPR's All Songs Considered to discuss Nirvana's In Utero reissue.

The album, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, is being re-released on 24th September. The former members spoke about the production of the album and played a demo of 'All Apologies', Steve Albini's original mix of 'Heart-Shaped Box', the original of 'Serve the Servants' and a previously unheard track, 'Forgotten Time'.

They said of the unreleased track: "...we found it and were like, what is this song? And I don't really remember," Novoselic explained. "And [we were], like, what do you want to call it? And I'm like, I don't want to give it a name, so let's just call it 'Forgotten Tune' and let people make up their own minds what it is. But I remember the main riff in that tune was, like, from 1988 or something. Just trying to, like, bring back a riff. 'All Apologies' was from 1990, and 'Dumb' was a pre-Nevermind song. 'Pennyroyal Tea,' [Dave] and Kurt were getting crazy some night down in that apartment with a multi-track cassette recorder, and 'Pennyroyal Tea' came out of that. It's just kind of, like, there were new songs we were trying to revisit, old ideas ... 'Forgotten Tune' just represents that idea. 'Let's see if we can make something out of this.'"

The former members also talked about the recording location of In Utero, "If you've ever seen pictures of the studio or the house, I'm sure it's a beautiful place to hang out in in the summertime," Grohl waxed nostalgic about recording. "Unfortunately, we were there in February. It's outside of Minneapolis. It was, like, subzero arctic temperature. But that room where we recorded the stuff, the room sounded great and it was a comfortable place to be. And I remember sitting at my drums and Kurt was to my left and Krist was to my right, and we had proper isolation and we would track live together."

The r-issue will be available as a 3CD/1DVD Super Deluxe set, which includes a full recording of the band's Live and Loud concert at Seattle's Pier 48 from December 13th 1993. It will also be released as a 2-CD set and triple vinyl set, while the Live and Loud concert film will be available as a DVD on its own.
