Hidden gem from 1995.


A rare and expanded version of “I Figured You Out” from the American indie folk artist, Elliott Smith, have come to light. The track was originally recorded in 1995 as a demo for Mary Lou Lord. She later included her version of the track as part of her EP, Martian Saints. Kill Rock Stars shared the unedited version as part of Either/Or: Expanded Edition, which is comprised of original songs by Elliott Smith that has been remastered under Larry Crane.

The new record will commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Smith’s best-selling LP and will be available on March 10. Smith began his career in 1994 and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song in 1998. He died in LA at the age of 34 and his last record, From a Basement on a Hill, was released posthumously.
