RuffMercy (real name Russ Murphy) got his break making graphics for MTV and Nickelodeon, though he has been making music videos since 2011. His credits also include videos made for Radiohead frontman Thom York’s Suspiria remake in 2018.

Prior to the new “Dumb” visual, Nirvana also released a digital single featuring “Pennyroyal Tea” (Live in Los Angeles)” + “Scentless Apprentice” (Live in Seattle).” Released on September 29, these live renditions of In Utero classics are the first of 53 previously unreleased tracks included in the three Super Deluxe editions of the In Utero 30th anniversary multi-format reissues arriving on October 27, 2023.

Configurations include a limited-edition 8LP Super Deluxe box set, 5CD Super Deluxe box set, 1 LP + 10” edition, 2CD Deluxe edition, and a Digital Super Deluxe edition. Additionally, In Utero’s original twelve songs, along with five bonus tracks and B-sides, have been newly remastered from the original analog master stereo tapes by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Services—who assisted producer Steve Albini as the only other engineer at the original sessions.

Nirvana recorded In Utero over the course of six days in February 1993 at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, MN with Albini.  In a retrospective review, Pitchfork rated it a rare perfect score of “10.0” and wrote, “In Utero is the sort of painful shock that, paradoxically, reinstills the empowering sensation of feeling alive.” Upon its arrival back in 1993, David Fricke wrote in Rolling Stone, “In Utero is a lot of things—brilliant, corrosive, enraged and thoughtful, most of them all at once. But more than anything, it’s a triumph of the will.”

Originally released September 21, 1993, In Utero was Nirvana’s third and final studio album, its first No.1 debut on the Billboard 200 and has since been certified 6x platinum in the United States.
