A long-lost cover by Kurt Cobain of the classic Beatles song "And I Love Her" will appear in the new documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck.

The film will have its L.A. premiere this week at the ArcLight Hollywood. Tickets are available now, but you can also score free tickets to the April 25 screening at 8 p.m. followed by a Q&A with director Brett Morgen and former Soundgarden manager Jeff Suhy by coming to Amoeba Hollywood starting on April 22 and asking at the Info Counter (one ticket per customer, available while supplies last). Read more about it here.

Morgen found the cover among the hundreds of hours of unheard Cobain tapes he was given access to by Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, for the documentary, according to Rolling Stone. It's especially notable given than the late Nirvana frontman was wont to say that he loved the Beatles but hated Paul McCartney. ("And I Love Her" is a McCartney tune off their third album, A Hard Day's Night.) The film's score will include this song plus numerous others Morgen unearthed.

Hear the haunting cover below:
