Universal Music today announced that the forthcoming 20th anniversary reissue of Nirvana’s third and final album, 1993’s In Utero, will be released in multiple formats on Sept. 24, including a 3CD/1DVD “Super Deluxe Edition” box set that will feature more than 70 “remastered, remixed, rare, unreleased and live recordings.”

While the label has not revealed the tracklist, the various reissues of the album — which also will be released as a 2CD set and a triple-vinyl release — will include “a veritable treasure trove of never-before-heard demos, B-sides, compilation tracks,” including live material recorded by the touring lineup of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl and Pat Smear.

That include a long-awaited DVD of the band’s complete “Live and Loud” concert filmed on Seattle’s Pier 48 on Dec. 13, 1993 — a performance that also will be released as a standalone single-disc DVD that also will be issued, with several never-before-released bonus performances, on Sept. 24.

The In Utero re-release — which the label teased earlier this month by resurrecting a vintage TV ad for the record — follows a similar monster reissue of Nevermind in 2011.
