Originally released on September 21, 1993, the trio’s follow-up to 1991’s hugely successful Nevermind album was recorded by Steve Albini at Pachyderm Recording Studio, in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, in under two weeks, with Albini pressing ‘record’ on February 13, 1993 and completing his mix of the album on February 26.

“Nevermind and In Utero are two totally different albums,” Dave Grohl says in This Is Call. “Nevermind was intentional, as much as any revisionists might say it was a contrived version of Nirvana, it wasn’t: we went down there to make that record, we rehearsed hours and hours and hours, day after day, to get to Nevermind. But In Utero was so different. There was no laboured process, it was just… bleurgh…it just came out, like a purge, and it was so pure and natural.”
Steve Albini recently told Louder, “I wasn’t that familiar with Nirvana before the sessions, but I can say that I came to appreciate them as a band and Kurt as an artist during the course of those sessions and I admire them tremendously.”
