Johnny Cash: Forever Words Offers Star Performershttp://bestclassicbands.com/johnny-cash ... ds-2-8-18/
Johnny Cash: Forever Words–a collaborative album consisting of songs created from his unknown poetry, lyrics, and letters set to music by an array of contemporary artists, will be released on April 6. The Feb. 8 announcement, from Sony Music’s Legacy Recordings, noted that the title will be available on CD and as a 2-LP set.
When Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash passed, they left behind what John Carter Cash, their son and the album’s co-producer, describes as a “monstrous amassment” of things, including a treasure trove of undiscovered material that includes his father’s handwritten letters, poems and documents, penned across the entirety of his life.
Over the past two years, John Carter Cash and co-producer Steve Berkowitz invited a stellar cast of musicians including Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson to create new music to accompany these newly discovered writings.
The release is also the musical companion to the best-selling Forever Words: The Unknown Poems, a volume of Cash’s unpublished writing edited by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon and curated by John Carter Cash and Berkowitz.Johnny Cash: Forever Words Track Listing
