bc092_1084274

Beverley Martyn has a new album out on April 22nd. The Phoenix and the Turtle includes the song ‘Reckless Jane’, a co-write with songwriter Nick DrakeStarted just months before Drake died, the two wrote the lyrics to the folk song together and first began working on the music during a jam session in Martyn’s home in Hastings.

It lay half-finished until Martyn, ex-wife of guitarist John Martyn, decided to complete the song last year for her new album. The pair worked on the song during the spring of 1974, when Martyn was 27 and Drake around the age of 25, shortly before his death.
