Nirvana tribute album devoted to Nevermind - out in October
On October 11, Reimagine Music will release 'Come As You Are: A 20th Anniversary Tribute to Nirvana's Nevermind' which features a select few of the biggest names in Alt Rock. From the press release:
To underscore Nirvana's vast influence on the present-day musical landscape, and coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the release of Nevermind, this new Reimagine Music compilation sought out the top, highly popular, artists in alternative and indie rock: Hawthorne Heights, Story Of The Year, Anthony Raneri (of Bayside), Finger Eleven, The Album Leaf, Margot & The Nuclear So and So's, mewithoutYou, Maps and Atlases, Murder By Death, The Dutch Masters (featuring Brent and Courtney of The Dandy Warhols), and Pitty.
Come As You Are is produced by the acclaimed Jim Sampas whose other tributes to seminal albums such as Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska w/ Johnny Cash, Aimee Mann, Ben Harper and others and The Beatles' Rubber Soul w/ Sufjan Stevens, Ted Leo, Low, and others, as well as the Jay Farrar & Benjamin Gibbard album One Fast Move Or I'm Gone: Music From Kerouac's Big Sur, are regarded as touchstones of the genre. Each reimagining is a unique experience because Sampas comes at the music from a fresh perspective, combining the right artists with the perfect track, all with an eye toward producing insightful performances that capture the original intent of the tracks.
