Watch: Jeff Buckley - “I Know It’s Over” (The Smiths Cover) Video

You and I Due Out March 16

Feb 11, 2016 Jeff Buckley Bookmark and Share

It’s a bit strange for there to be a new Jeff Buckley video, especially as it’s for an unreleased cover of The Smiths’ “I Know It’s Over” that Buckley probably never intended for release. Buckley only released one full-length studio album, 1994’s Grace, before his tragic passing in 1997. Since then various Buckley recordings have been posthumously released and on March 16 a new album of previously unreleased Buckley recordings, You and I, is due out. The beautifully shot video features a young boy and his mother. Buckley cameos briefly in stock footage on a TV. Amanda Demme directed the clip, which you can watch below via Rolling Stone.

You and I is a 10-song release that collects recordings from early in Buckley’s career and are mainly covers he recorded to help guide producers to what he had in mind for the sound of his debut album. It includes two Smiths covers, as well as covers of songs by Sly & The Family Stone, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, and others. It also includes the first ever recordings of his song “Grace.”

Most of the tracks were recorded in February 1993 at Steve Addabbo’s Shelter Island Sound studio and were discovered when a 20th anniversary edition of Grace was being put together. The full tracklist is below again.

1. Just Like a Woman (Bob Dylan cover)
