Kill Rock Stars have shared Elliott Smith’s live rendition of “Some Song” from the late artist’s previously unreleased live album Live at Umbra Penumbra, which is set for release on August 28th.
The track first appeared on the “Needle in the Hay” seven-inch single back in 1995. “Got a rock song I’d like to play,” Smith tells the crowd on the live rendition before delivering lines like, “Help me kill my time/ ‘Cause I’ll never be fine.”
Live at Umbra Penumbra is a recording of Smiths September 17th, 1994 show at the Portland, Oregon cafe, and it marks the earliest known recording of Smith performing solo.
