Kurt Cobain recorded an album of solo demos before his death 18 years ago, it has been revealed.
Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson spilled the beans about the secret Cobain album, which he says could have been a classic record.
"[Kurt] was headed in a direction that was really cool. It would have been his 'White Album'," Eric told Fuse. "I was really excited about some of the stuff he was working on. I got to see him play it in front of me."
He says Kurt was working towards a solo album with plenty of collaborations, and included one "very sweet, just touching" cover song - but he won't say what it was.
"There is one cover... I won't say what it is. I don't own the stuff," explains Erlandson, perhaps hinting that Hole front woman Courtney Love has been keeping a lid on the project. "I just hope that one day it will be released for fans. It's just so heartbreaking."
Eric adds that the solo album could be released in its raw acoustic form, but he doesn't know for sure.
"I'm not in control of things," he said. "I just wish something would come together. I think the fans would be a lot happier. If nobody ever hears those songs, except for like three people, then... that's the way it goes."
Meanwhile, Eric and his mid-90s bandmates in Hole reformed on stage for the first time in 15 years in New York at the weekend.
