David Bowie and REM are amongst the high profile acts donating songs to a Kurt Cobain soundtrack.

The film ‘Kurt Cobain – About A Son’ is due to hit the screens this autumn and uses Cobain’s very own voice collated by Michael Azzarad. The writer had previously used the tapes as a basis for his book ‘Come As You Are.’

Typically, the film boasts a mightily impressive soundtrack. REM give their track ‘New Orleans Instrumental Number One’, while Bowie donates ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ – the track Cobain famously covered for MTV Unplugged.

Other artists and their tracks include Iggy Pop with ‘The Passenger’,  Mark Lanegan’s ‘Museum’ and Mudhoney’s ‘Touch Me I’m Sick.’
