You and I is the forthcoming posthumous release from Jeff Buckley, out March 16th via Columbia/Legacy Recordings. In addition to a pair of early demos, the collection includes previously unheard covers of songs from the likes of The Smiths, Led Zeppelin, and Jevetta Steele. The initial announcement for the release came accompanied with Buckley’s version of Sly & The Family Stone’s “Everyday People”, and now NPR has revealed another cover track from the record.
Recorded not long after Buckley originally signed to Columbia in 1993, this version of Bob Dylan’s classic “Just Like a Woman” sounds familiar, but not necessarily in a way Buckley would’ve been privy too. The acoustic rendition calls to mind the live version from The Bootleg Series Vol. 4, a collection released a year after Buckley’s death. Even so, the singer-songwriter put his own definitive touch on the track, delivering an aching swoon as only he could. Take a listen to the song, which kicks off You and I, below.
