New 'lost' Johnny Cash album out in March

A new album by the great Johnny Cash, recently discovered in the singer's  expansive archives, will be out in spring. The album of 12 all-new songs, titled "Out Among the Stars," was cut by Cash  and producer Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s, but was never released by his record label due to the the thinking that Cash's sound was becoming old news as the "Urban Cowboy" era hit its peak. Cash was dropped by Columbia Records soon after, and the master tapes from the sessions went into the Cash memorabilia vaults. The recordings were rediscovered earlier this year, and his family moved quickly to get the album out to the public  

Included on "Out Among the Stars," according to this story in Guardian UK, is a duet between Cash and his wife June Carter Cash, and a duet with Waylon Jennings. The album is scheduled to be released on Legacy Records on March 24, 2014.
