Published Feb 29, 2016Last night (February 28), Dave Grohl delivered a touching performance of the Beatles' "Blackbird" during the In Memoriam segment of the 88th Academy Awards, but now some of his much less polished work has surfaced.
A rare rendition of Nirvana's "Marigold" featuring Grohl on vocals is now available online. The song was originally written by Grohl for his 1992 solo project Pocketwatch, then later tackled in the studio by Nirvana during the band's In Utero sessions.
Grohl contributed vocals, guitar and bass, in addition to the bass of Krist Novoselic and Kurt Cobain's vocal harmony, while the freshly uncovered alternative version also features cello courtesy of Kera Schaley.
"Marigold" appeared as the B-side to Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" single and was also included on the 2004 With the Lights Out box set. Hear the new alternative take on the track in the player below [via Alternative Nation].
