According to an interview Eric Erlandson did with

Eric Erlandson - Hole

Kurt Cobain was demoing new songs at the time of his death that transcended anything he’d written so far: “[Kurt] was headed in a direction that was really cool. It would have been his White Album,” Erlandson says, referring to the Beatles' self-titled magnum opus.

He adds, “That’s really what he was going towards, a solo album but working with different people. I was really excited about some of the stuff he was working on. I got to see him play it in front of me. That’s why I was really sad [when he died]. I was like, ‘Oh man, not only are you cutting off a life, but a message to the world, a musical path is just left with … Bush and all this other stuff [laughs]. He was cut short. Who knows where the music would have gone.”

He goes on to mention that there are recordings of Kurt performing a well known song, and that he hopes that at some point the demo's that Kurt did for his solo album will be released. Check out for the whole interview piece.
