Nirvana’s In Utero Kicks Off Spotify’s New Original Documentary Series, Spotify LandmarkBy: Josh Wolford - September 19, 2013
Music fans looking to get the inside scoop on classic musical moments have a new resource. Spotify has just unveiled a new music documentary series – it’s called Spotify Landmark and its premiere episode takes an in-depth look into Nirvana’s seminal album In Utero.
“Spotify Landmark is the story behind some of the greatest moments in music, told by the people who made them. Each show blends intimate interviews with artists, producers, industry figures and celebrities to create a listening history of legendary albums, concerts and events,” says Spotify.
In Utero is being rereleased this month in a 70-song, 3-disc special edition to mark the album’s 20th anniversary, so it’s fitting that Spotify would choose this historic music moment to profile in their debut Landmark series. Plus, it’s just a terrific album – so there’s that.
What this amounts to is a sort of audio-documentary featuring a bunch of key players in the “musical moment”‘s creation. For instance, the In Utero episode features segments from Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, album producer Steve Albini, and comedian Bobcat Goldthwait, who created the famous album release promotional video.
