Nirvana intended the record to diverge significantly from the polished production of it's previous album, Nevermind (1991). To capture a more abrasive & natural sound, the group hired engineer Steve Albini to record In Utero during a 2-week period in February 1993 at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. The music was recorded quickly with few studio embellishments & the song lyrics & album packaging incorporated medical imagery that conveyed frontman Kurt Cobain's outlook on his publicized personal life and his band's newfound fame. Soon after recording was completed, rumors circulated in the press that DGC might not release the album in it's original state, as the record label felt that the result was not commercially viable. Although Nirvana publicly denied the statements, the group was not fully satisfied with the sound Albini had captured. Albini declined to alter the album further and ultimately the band hired R.E.M producer Scott Litt to make minor changes to the album's sound & remix the singles "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies".
Upon release, In Utero entered the Billboard 200 chart at #1 & received critical acclaim as a drastic departure from Nevermind. The record has been certified 5X platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and has sold 15 million copies worldwide.
