A cover version of Bob Dylan’s Just Like A Woman by the dearly missed Jeff Buckley has just been released online.
The release comes in the wake of a soon to be arriving album titled You and I. The album will be comprised of unreleased tracks by Buckley, mostly taken from his 1993 sessions at Shelter Island Sound Studio where he made his seminal record Grace.
The tracks were found in Sony’s vaults by staff members when they were looking for additional material to add to the 20th anniversary addition of the singer’s mesmerising first and only studio record, Grace.
The singer tragically died in 1997 when he drowned in the Mississippi River, while going for a night swim. At the time he was busy recording his sophomore album, but unfortunately never managed to finish it.
The album Sketches for my Sweetheart the Drunk was released posthumously in 1998. It was the start of a string of releases that would keep Buckley in the public’s mind, and remind them of his prolific but sadly unfulfilled talent. Despite the minimal output during his lifetime, Buckley remains as a key figure in music with his guitar work and phenomenal voice sighted as an inspiration by many of today’s musicians.
You and I has been overseen by Buckley’s mother Mary Guibert and will feature two previously unheard and original tracks by her son, along with a range of covers from bands such as Led Zeppelin and The Smiths. The album is scheduled for release on March 11th this year.
