The legend of Jeff Buckley carried far past his untimely death at the age of 30.
An Expertise guitar player, matched by his soaring vocal range, Buckley only ever managed to show the world his talents with one debut album. While 1994’s Grace was enough to impress critics and audiences everywhere, his early departure left the world longing for his sound they had only recently become accustomed to.
Come this March, the legend of Jeff Buckley will live on though with this first album release from the artist in over 20 years. This 10 track posthumous album titled You and I features covers by Buckley from a varied list of artists. Today we have the first sample from that album, Sly and the Family Stone’s “Everyday People”. As NPR reports, these were covers Buckley used to impress record and studio execs before the release of Grace.
You and I will be available March 16th via Columbia/Legacy Recordings. Take a listen to “Everyday People” below:
