Rare Nirvana Reissue, Jay-Z and Kanye LP + More

  • Nirvana‘s 1992 Hormoaning EP — an import-only set recorded for BBC 1 Radio and available on the band’s ’92 Australian tour — will be reissued on limited-edition vinyl for Record Store Day. The release features covers of the Wipers‘ “D-7” and the Vaselines‘ “Son of a Gun” and “Molly’s Lips,” along with Nirvana tracks “Aneurysm” and “Even in His Youth.” [NME]

  • Producer Young Guru says Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s collaborative LP Watch the Throne is near completion: “It just needs little tweaks and things like that. But the core of the album is finished.” The project, originally slated for release in January, was then pushed to March, although Guru did not say whether it’s been pushed back further. [Vibe]

  • David Bowie‘s shelved 2001 album Toy — which never saw release due to conflicts with Virgin, his label at the time — has leaked online via various BitTorrent sites. The album features tracks later re-worked for 2002’s Heathen and subsequent B-Sides, but much of the material has never been released. [AntiQuiet]

  • Dubstep pioneer Burial will put out a new single titled “Street Halo” on March 28. The London-based artist, whose real name is Will Bevan, will also include two other tracks “NYC” and “Stolen Dog” on the release. [NME]

  • More setbacks for U2‘s Spider-Man musical: actress T.V. Carpio, who plays villainess Arachne, suffered an unspecified injury last week during a battle sequence and will be sidelined from the production for two weeks. She is the fifth cast member to be hurt since previews began last fall. [The New York Times]
