Jeff Buckley Delicately Covers the Smiths in New Video for ‘I Know It’s Over’
Although Jeff Buckley tragically died nearly two decades ago, that hasn't stopped a steady flow of posthumous releases in his name. Next month will see the release of You and I, a new collection of unreleased studio recordings and covers by the late singer.
Among the tracks is a cover of the Smiths' "I Know It's Over," and director Amanda Demme has put together a moving video for Buckley's take on the 1986 classic. The clip (above) follows the relationship between a mother and her anxious young son.
"When I first heard Jeff, he gave me permission to feel fully and with contradiction," Redford told Rolling Stone. "He inspired me to fight for authenticity, and to feel confidence in simplicity. To collaborate on these songs coming to life, and to see the community of people who Jeff touched, has been a privilege."
