Jeff Buckley's You And I due out this spring
Jeff Buckley’s You and I, his first album of studio sessions for Columbia Records, is being released to the public for the first time this spring, the label announced Thursday.
Buckley, who died in 1997 at age 30, recorded most of the album in 1993. You and I is made up of 10 tracks, including covers of Bob Dylan’s “Just Like a Woman” and the Smiths’ “The Boy with the Thorn in His Side” along with two original songs, “Grace” and “Dream of You and I.”
“They offer an incredible, rare glimpse of an artist, alone, in the sacred space that is the studio,” Legacy Recordings president Adam Block said in a statement, referring to the tracks, which they discovered while doing research for Grace’s — Buckley’s only studio album, released in 1994 — 20th anniversary. “There’s an intimacy and an honesty to the performances that’s literally breathtaking.”
