    The forthcoming Kurt Cobain documentary About a Son and the film's soundtrack will both feature audio narration and clips from the singer himself, culled from a journalist's audiotapes. The About a Son official soundtrack will be out on September 11 via the independent label Barsuk records, with songs by R.E.M., Iggy Pop and David Bowie among others, with Cobain's audio clips interspersed throughout the tracks. Presumably, most of the songs were selected because they represent Cobain's primary influences.

    The only original vocal performance on About a Son is by Death Cab For Cutie singer Ben Gibbard. He covers the Beat Happening's "Indian Summer." Strangely, there is nary a Nirvana song found on the whole record.

    This is the tracklisting:

    "Overture," Steve Fisk and Ben Gibbard
    Audio: Never Intended
    "Motorcycle Song," Arlo Guthrie
    "Eye Flys," the Melvins
    Audio: Punk Rock
    "Banned in D.C.," Bad Brains
    "Up Around the Bend," Creedence Clearwater Revival
    "Put Some Sugar on It," Half Japanese
    "Son of a Gun," the Vaselines
    "Graveyard," Butthole Surfers
    Audio: Hardcore Was Dead
    "Owner's Lament," Scratch Acid
    "Touch Me I'm Sick," Mudhoney
    Audio: Car Radio
    "The Passenger," Iggy Pop
    "The Borgeois Blues," Leadbelly
    "New Orleans Instrumental No. 1," R.E.M.
    Audio: The Limelight
    "The Man Who Sold the World," David Bowie
    "Museum," Mark Lanegan
    "Indian Summer," Ben Gibbard
