On November 12, Geffen and UMe will reissue Nirvana’s classic 1991 album Nevermind to celebrate the record’s 30th anniversary.
The Nevermind 30th Anniversary Edition will be available in a variety of configurations, including as a 2CD set, 1LP set, and deluxe digital download. In all formats, Nevermind is newly remastered from the original half-inch stereo analog tapes to high-resolution 192kHz 24-bit.
The standard reissue will come with a bonus 7" featuring an A-side of “Endless, Nameless” and a B-side of “Even In His Youth” and “Aneurysm.” The Super Deluxe reissue features 8 LPs, 5 CDs, the 7", and a Blu-ray with Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands - a newly remastered video of a November 25, 1991 concert at Paradiso.
Other concert videos available with the 30th anniversary Super Deluxe reissue are Live in Del Mar, California (December 28, 1991), Live in Melbourne, Australia for Triple J (February 1, 1991), and Live in Tokyo (February 19, 1992).

Nevermind was previously reissued back when it celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2011. The latest reissue comes just after Spencer Elden - the nude underwater baby photographed on Nevermind’s iconic cover - sued Nirvana and some of its associates over the shot, claiming it amounted to child pornography and that he had suffered "permanent harm" from the photo's usage. Despite the lawsuit, the cover art for Nevermind has not changed for the new reissue.
You can pre-order the new and improved versions of Nevermind over on Nirvana's official website.
