Nirvana’s 'Nevermind' Getting Reissued

Universal Music Group/Interscope/Geffen(NEW YORK) -- It's been 20 years since Nirvana unleashed its masterpiece Nevermind, and Universal Records will be celebrating the anniversary with a deluxe five-disk edition, according to Spin.

The set, which drops Sept. 19, will contain four CDs of music -- including B-sides, rarities and unreleased material -- as well as a DVD with footage from some of the band's BBC radio appearances and a previously-unreleased full-length concert video.

While fans got a good chunk of rare Nirvana on the 2004 With The Lights Out box set, the new Nevermind deluxe edition goes deeper into the archives. There is some speculation on the BBC radio performances, but Spin guesses that they are "most likely from four in-studio sessions recorded between 1989 and 1991," including segments from John Peel and Mark Goodier's radio shows.

This reissue isn't the only new material fans will get from the band this year.  According to a statement, Universal is also planning a number of "various events and releases" celebrating the groundbreaking group.

'Glee's' Warblers CD Released; Hear Matt Morrison, Elton John Duet

Columbia Records(NEW YORK) -- The seventh full-length soundtrack album from the cast of Glee hits stores on Tuesday, but this one's a little different.

Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers is the first soundtrack to feature, exclusively, music from the Dalton Academy Warblers, the vocal group at Kurt's school, Dalton Academy.  Led by Blaine, played by Darren Criss, the group warbles its way through fan favorites like "Teenage Dream," "Raise Your Glass," "Hey Soul Sister" and "Misery," as well as previously-unheard versions of Rod Stewart's "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" and Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know."

The popularity of the Warblers' tracks -- especially "Teenage Dream" -- helped lead the Glee cast to their history-making chart success, which saw them eclipse both The Beatles and Elvis Presley for the title of the artist with the most Billboard Hot 100 singles ever.

In other Glee music news, another sneak peek at Matthew Morrison's upcoming debut album has hit online.  This time, it's a mashup duet he's recorded with none other than Sir Elton John.  The track mixes together two of Elton's classics, both from his 1972 album Honky Chateau: "Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters" and "Rocket Man."

Morrison has said that the epic seven-minute track is his favorite song on the album, which will also feature a duet with Gwyneth Paltrow.  Paltrow is set to return to Glee Tuesday night.

Chris Brown's Album Headed to Number One

Jive Records(NEW YORK) -- Even though Chris Brown made headlines earlier this week when he threw a tantrum backstage at Good Morning America, it doesn't seem to have affected his album sales.

Billboard reports that Brown's new disc F.A.M.E. is on target to debut at number one next week, with first-week sales between 250,000 to 300,000 copies.

In addition, Brown's single "Look at Me Now," featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes, has just become his first top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 since "Forever" hit number two in 2008.  This is Brown's 10th trip overall to the top 10 on that chart, but it's significant because it's his first track to chart that high since his 2009 assault of Rihanna.
