Preternaturally talented and gone far too soon, Elliott Smith has been a much-missed presence in the music industry since his death in 2003. Highly influential on most of your favourite indie bands, Smith had a knack for storytelling that never seemed trite or twee, and a quiet wit all his own.

For many, one of his greatest achievements was his 1997 album Either/Or, which will see a 20th anniversary reissue on March 10. The extended version will include a remastered cut of the original album, as well as a number of rarities from across his catalogue. One such rarity is a new studio version of "I Figured You Out," a song Smith originally wrote for Mary Lou Lord, which has now been released by Kill Rock Stars ahead of the reissue. Hear Smith's typically self-deprecating take on the track below, and prepare to get in your feelings:
