Few records have a history that runs decades deep, but Beth Orton and The Chemical Brothers' cover collaboration of Tim Buckley's "I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain" is one of those rare stories. 

Orton, who is a singer-songwriter known for blending folk and electronica, tweeted that she's been going through her archives and what records might have slipped through the cracks.

The collaboration comes on Orton's new label Lost Leaves. The two acts have previously worked together on songs like "One Too Many Mornings" and "Alive Alone" on The Chemical Brothers' 1995 album Exit Planet Dust.
