Johnny Cash To Release New Album
The original ‘man in black’ will release a new album posthumously in 2014. The record, which will contain 12 never-before heard tracks, is to be suitably titled ‘Out Among The Stars’.

The tapes used for the release are from over twenty years ago, recorded at a session in Columbia Studios, Nashville in 1981, as well as a 1111 Sound Studios session in 1984. Backing the legendary Cash was Marty Stuart on guitar and mandolin, Nashville A-Team members Jerry Kennedy on guitar and Pete Drake on steel guitar. Hargus ‘Pig’ Robbins added in some piano work, and Henry Strzelecki on bass, even Cash’s wife June Carter lent her vocals to several duets.



The recordings were found by John and June’s son John Carter Cash in 2012 when he and the Cash experts at Legacy were cataloging his father’s and mother’s archives. “When my parents passed away, it became necessary to go through this material,” he says. “We found these recordings that were produced by Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s, they were beautiful.”



John Carter Cash, along with co-producer and archivist Steve Berkowitz, enlisted Marty Stuart, Buddy Miller and Carlene Carter, as well as other master musicians, to collaborate in restoring the album at the Cash Cabin Studios in Hendersonville, TN.
