A Nirvana live album is set to be released for the first time on digital and vinyl this year.
The grunge band - who were fronted by the late Kurt Cobain - are famous for their iconic MTV Unplugged set, which took place on 1 November 1994.

Earlier this year, Billie Eilish told Radio X what she thought when she heard that none other than Dave Grohl called her the spirit of “authentic” rock ’n’ roll.
The Foo Fighters frontman recently revealed that his daughters were big fans of Billie and explained that he felt the singer’s connection with her audience reminded him of the reaction his old band Nirvana had back in the 90s.
Talking to Radio X, Eilish admitted that she was still gobsmacked by the comparison, saying: “Can you even believe that? I can’t even believe that.”
She went on: “Are you kidding? He said rock isn’t dead because of me. Dude, I grew up on that shit.”

The Bellyache singer is referring to when the Foo Fighters legend praised her at the Pollstar Live conference on Tuesday 12 February, where he discussed everything from the late Kurt Cobain to the future of Rock 'N' Roll.
Speaking about the 17-year-old singer-songwriter, whose full name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell, he said: “My daughters are obsessed with Billy Eilish. And what I'm seeing happening with my daughters is the same revolution that happened to me at their age.
“They're becoming themselves through her music. She totally connects to them. So we went to go see her play… and the connection that she has with her audience is the same thing that was happening with Nirvana in 1991.
“I would call that rock n roll. When I look at someone like Billie Eilish, I'm like...shit man....rock n roll is not even close to being dead..."
