‘You and I’, the new album of unheard Jeff Buckley material, is streaming online.
The album is due for release on March 11 and includes Buckley’s take on material by The Smiths and Bob Dylan as well as early demo versions of some of his best loved material.
The tracks on ‘You and I’ were discovered in the Sony Music archives while staff at the label researched the 20th anniversary edition of Buckley’s album ‘Grace’.
Most of the songs were recorded in February 1993 at Steve Addabbo’s Shelter Island Sound studio and include takes on songs by Sly & The Family Stone, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, plus others.
The album features two pieces of original music: the first-ever studio recording of ‘Grace’ and ‘Dream of You and I’, a song described as “mysterious and haunting” in a press release.
‘You and I’ has been overseen by the artist’s mother, Mary Guibert.
