Three previously unreleased Elliott Smith tracks have been shared online – listen to them below.

The songs have been made public by Mike Doughty, former frontman of '90s New York alt-rockers Soul Coughing.

The three electronic dance songs were recorded sometime in the late 1990s during a session at Los Angeles' Sunset Sound Factory by Doughty, under his producer name UUL. He asked Smith to provide vocals on the songs while he was in town working on the Good Will Hunting soundtrack.

Speaking to Pitchfork, Doughty said he only found the tape from their session in November last year (2013). The three songs are now available in the form he origionally intended, but he has provided new production on the backing track under his UUL alias.

One track, 'The Record', featured lyrics that eventually made it onto Smith's track 'Bottle Up And Explode', which featured on 1998's 'XO'. Another track, 'Dogs' opens with audio of Smith chatting in the studio. Listen to all three tracks below.

Elliot Smith released five solo studio albums before his death in 2003. Two further albums, 2004's 'From A Basement On A Hill' and 2007's 'New Moon', were released posthumously.
