Jeff Buckley: I Know It's Over // The Smiths Cover

In a world where the best new records of the new year are being released by people who have been dead for a long time, about to die, about to retire veterans or longtime veterans of an underground genre, it's no surprise that posthumous releases keep coming at such a pace. There was a time when I had grown tired and had enough of them, but nowadays I get excited whenever an old favorite comes back with new material.

Jeff Buckley has been gone since 1997, but his new album of unreleased recordings of cover songs and a few originals is about to be released on March 16th. Among the songs the late singer covers on You And I will be some great, timeless tracks by Bob Dylan, Sly & The Family Stone, Led Zeppelin and this one by The Smiths, for which a nice looking accompanying video has been created, directed by Amanda Demme.
