Jeff Buckley released just one studio album, Grace, before the emerging star died unexpectedly in May, 1997, drowning while swimming in the waters flowing from the Mississippi River. He was only 30 years old.
Given his painfully short discography, fans will delight in the newly-dropped album, You and I, which features, among other things, previously-unreleased Buckley covers of songs originally recorded by Bob Dylan (“Just Like a Woman”); Sly & the Family Stone (“Everyday People”); Led Zeppelin (“Night Flight”) and more. The album is now streaming on Spotify.
Starved for some more Buckley music? Then you’ll also want to check out this new interactive website which lets you browse/stream every album in Buckley’s varied vinyl record collection. Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Van Morrison, the Stones, Dylan, Bowie, Coltrane and The Clash–they’re all part of the collection. The video above shows you how to take full advantage of the new site. Enjoy.
