Listen :: Unreleased Elliott Smith track to feature on 20th anniversary 'Either/Or' reissue

Words: Ellie Ward

Elliott Smith’s album 'Either/Or' will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, and in honour of which his old label Kill Rock Stars is reissuing the LP, together with previously unheard bonus material. In addition, 'Either/Or: Expanded Edition', released on March 10, will feature a number of rarities and live tracks.

The work also includes a previously unheard studio rendition of the song 'I Figured You Out', which you can hear below. Smith originally recorded the track as a demo for Mary Lou Lord with Neil Gust on drums.

Smith died from stab wounds to the chest in 2003 in Los Angeles. He was 35. The autopsy evidence was inconclusive as to whether the wounds were self-inflicted. At the time of his death, Smith was working on his sixth studio album, 'From A Basement On The Hill', which was posthumously completed and released.
