‘Nevermind’ tribute album

Midnight Juggernauts, The Vaselines, Amanda Palmer and Surfer Blood are just some of the names behind the slyly named Newermind, a track-by-track cover album of Nirvana’s much-loved Nevermind.

Curated by SPIN Magazine to celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary, the tribute will be released in addition to a deluxe format reissue of the original Nevermind and will be available as a free download tomorrow.

It’s not the first time SPIN have commissioned a covers album either; they did it with Prince’s Purple Rain too. What’ll get the complete covers treatment next?
