Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic Says New Album is On The Way

Krist Novoselic, the bassist for Nirvana, has stated that he is working on a new album, which he hopes to release this spring. He announced the news on Twitter, first sharing an interview he gave to Bass Player magazine in 2011 and then writing, “I have not read this in years, but recall being happy with how it turned out.”

In a now-deleted tweet, he added: “I am really busy trying to finish a record. In the middle of some hangups – looking for a mid-March release. But it’s a secret, so don’t tell anybody!”

The bassist formed ‘Giants In The Trees’, an environmentally inspired band, in 2017, although it’s unclear whether the tweet refers to that project or a new solo record. Last year, Novoselic spoke with Uncut about Nirvana’s album ‘Nevermind,’ teasing the LP’s 30th anniversary reissue, which had yet to be issued at the time.

At the time he said, “The anniversary is really for the fans and what the album means to them. If it helps people make some sense of the world, that’s great. You have to figure it out for yourself, though.”

In the same interview, current Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl talked about how he and his bandmates didn’t think the record would be a hit. He recalled getting feedback from friends who had heard the record, who would remark things like: “Oh my God. You guys are going to be f*****g huge!”

Grohl added: “Everyone had these lofty opinions and I thought, ‘Well, it’s nice of you to say so, but there is no f*****g way that is ever going to happen.’

Nirvana’s lawyers submitted a motion to dismiss Spencer Elden’s latest motion to reopen the ‘Nevermind’ litigation earlier this month. It comes after the band’s legal battle with the man who was photographed as a baby for the legendary album’s cover art was rejected earlier this month by a judge.
