A new Johnny Cash album has been made by turning previously undiscovered lyrics and poems into new music. The album will be called ‘Johnny Cash: Forever Words’ and will also feature new music from Chris Cornell.
The record will be released on April 6th through Sony’s Legacy Recordings. It will also feature Kacey Musgraves, Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Kris Kristofferson & Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, John Mellencamp, Carlene Carter, Elvis Costello, The Jayhawk, Ruston Kelly and of course, the late Chris Cornell.
Chris Cornell sings track ‘You Never Knew My Mind’ and will be released nearly twenty-one years after Cash covered Soundgarden’s track ‘Rusty Cage’ for his record ‘Unchained’.
