Former NIRVANA bassist Krist Novoselic reports that unspecified "good will" likely will allow for the release of a collection featuring previously unheard studio material from the band later this year. "I can't say until the ink's dry, but it's just probably what you'd expect," Novoselic told Billboard.com in response to whether it will contain the much-anticipated unreleased track "You Know You're Right".
"All your assumptions would be safe. Unless [you think] it's gonna be this freaky, like, experimental noise record, no. It's all safe," Novoselic added. "And that way the band wins, the estate wins, the fans win, everybody wins, so it's good will." As far as when this new NIRVANA product may arrive, Novoselic said, "They [Universal Music Group] got that motherfucker on a rail, they're talking fourth quarter here."
Last fall, UMG had planned to release a 45-track box set to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the band's breakthrough album, Nevermind. The box was to include the unreleased track "You Know You're Right", which some call a hit waiting in the wings. After Love was granted an injunction by a Washington State Superior Court judge against the release of "You Know You're Right", the box set was delayed.
