Nirvana‘s 2002 self-titled greatest hits album is to be released on vinyl for the first time next month.

‘Nirvana’, which included some of the band’s biggest singles (‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, ‘Come As You Are’) as well as the then-unheard ‘You Know You’re Right’ upon its release, will be available in both standard and deluxe versions from August 28.

The album also includes tracks recorded during the band’s memorable MTV Unplugged session plus non-LP single ‘Sliver’.

Fans will be able to purchase the album as a double LP pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and packaged in a furnace black gatefold sleeve along with liner notes and a digital download card.

The ‘Nirvana’ tracklisting is as follows:

‘You Know You’re Right’
‘About A Girl?’
‘Been A Son?’
‘Sliver?’
‘Smells Like Teen Spirit?’
‘Come As You Are?’
‘Lithium’
‘In Bloom?’
‘Heart-Shaped Box?’
‘Pennyroyal Tea?’
‘Rape Me?’
‘Dumb?’
‘All Apologies?’
‘The Man Who Sold The World’

Earlier this year HMV announced a list of exclusive vinyl releases available at their stores nationwide, including Nirvana album ‘Nevermind’.

The music retailer, which recently announced plans to relaunch their online store for the first time since entering administration in 2013, will sell limited-edition vinyl pressings of albums from Morrissey, Velvet Underground, Black Sabbath, Joni Mitchell, Royal Blood and The Charlatans as well as Nirvana.

Morrissey’s album ‘Viva Hate’, ‘Your Arsenal’ and ‘Vauxhall & I’ will be issued on exclusive gold vinyl, limited to 500 copies each, while Royal Blood’s self-titled debut will be pressed with a reverse sleeve, limited to 1000 copies.
