New Music: Jeff Buckley & Elizabeth Fraser- All Flowers in Time Bend Towards the Sun

At the time of Jeff Buckley's death, the iconic singer-songwriter had oodles of unreleased material including demos, bootlegs, and live concert recordings. A lot of these recordings have been leaked over the internet over the years and are widely available on sites like YouTube.

One of those songs was a duet Buckley did with Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins titled "All Flowers in Time Bend Towards the Sun". There is not much information about this song other than the fact a tape of the track was discovered in Buckley's personal collection. Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, who now owns the right to the singer-songwriter's music has stated that she will never release the song. On Jeff Buckley's website a fan posed a question to Mary regarding putting the song out and she stated "I agree with all of you that "All Flowers In Time" is a lovely song, but we never had a proper studio recording of it, and the demo recordings we had were too personal and not suited to past projects." That is too bad because it is such a lovely song. Listen below:
