If you’re a Jeff Buckley fan, if you have a general predisposition for sappery, or if you’re someone who’s just having a bit of a shit day, then keep some Kleenex at the ready.
A never-before-heard Jeff Buckley song has just emerged online and it will tug at your heartstrings til they snap.
The studio recording – a cover of the Bob Dylan classic Just Like A Woman – is a sublime and haunting interpretation that showcases the fallen icon’s dizzying falsetto in full flight.
Listen below and feel the devastating tragedy of the incredible singer’s premature loss hit you afresh.
Just Like A Woman features on a new album of previously unheard Buckley material dubbed You And I alongside nine other songs, which were reportedly discovered in the Sony Music archives while label staff were researching the 20th anniversary edition of Buckley’s album Grace.
The disc features the singer’s takes on songs by The Smiths, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley and more, plus the first-ever studio recording of Grace and an original track called Dream of You and I, which has been described as “mysterious and haunting” in a press release (via NME).
You And I is due for release on March 11th. Check out the full tracklisting below.
