Nick Drake is to release a new album from beyond the grave.

Island records will be releasing a collection of songs by the much revered singer-songwriter in late spring/early summer.

Called ‘Family Tree’, the album collates rare Drake material and some songs that have never been heard before.

None of the tracks on the album have been mastered or officially released. The track-listing is yet to be announced.

Meanwhile, the Nick Drake documentary from 2000 ‘A Skin Too Few: The Days Of Nick Drake’ is being aired at South By Southwest on March 17.

Drake’s sister Gabrielle, Paul Weller, his producer John Boyd and arranger Robert Kirby will also host a discussion at the music festival under the banner ‘Nick Drake Remembered.’
