Lost Johnny Cash album coming next year
A long-lost Johnny Cash album entitled Out Among The Stars is to be released in March next year.
It was recorded during his tenure with Columbia Records in the early 1980s but was filed away and forgotten ahead of his move to Mercury in 1986.
It’s thought Out Among The Stars fills the gap between 1983′s Johnny 99, his 69th release, and 1985′s Rainbow, his 70th.
The Tapes were discovered during the archiving of the late singer’s estate, and are believed to have been saved by his wife June Carter Cash. Their son John says: “They never threw anything away – they kept everything in their lives. They had an archive that had everything in it from the original Johnny Cash Show to random things like a camel saddle, which was a gift from a prince of Saudi Arabia.”
The 12-track album will be released on March 25. Cash, who died in 2003, is said to be “in the very prime of his voice” in the recordings.
