Jeff Buckley‘s handwritten journals are to appear in print in a new book.
Jeff Buckley: His Own Voice is due in spring 2019, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Grace.
The book will feature letters, lyrics and photographs from Buckley, reports Rolling Stone.
The book will be compiled and edited by Buckley’s mother Mary Guibert and biographer David Browne, who wrote Dream Brother: The Lives And Music Of Jeff And Tim Buckley.
“In choosing these pages to share with the world, I’m giving him the chance to speak with his own voice, for the record… and for his fans to see what a sweet, funny, amazing human being he was,” Guibert said in a statement.
An audiobook edition will feature unreleased recordings, including Buckley’s outgoing voicemail message and his list of “100 things to do.”
