The Last Johnny Cash American Recordings!

The final American Recordings album by Johnny Cash is set to be released on February 26th!

From Pitchfork.com:

Rick Rubin produced this volume, just as he did all the others. And once again, Cash covers a whole lot of other people’s songs. This one will include Cash’s versions of Sheryl Crow’s “Redemption Day”, Kris Kristofferson’s “For The Good Times”, Tom Paxton’s “Can’t Help But Wonder Where I’m Bound”, Bob Nolan’s “Cool Water”, Ed McCurdy’s “Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream”, J.H. “Red” Hayes and Jack Rhodes’s “Satisfied Mind”, and Hawaiian monarch Queen Lili’uokalani’s farewell song “Aloha Oe”. It’ll also include a new Cash original called “I Corinthians: 15:55”.

By the way, “I Corinthians 15:55” reads as follows:
Where, O death is your victory
Where, O death is your sting

That is going to be a powerful song, especially since he was recording this around the time of his wife’s death and he died very shortly after he finished recording this album.
