The track entitled 'You Used to Love Me a Lot' and 11 other tracks will appear in the album that's due out on March 25, 2014.
The family of Johnny Cash has revealed their plan to drop the late singer's unreleased album on March 25, 2014. On Wednesday, December 18, a trailer for the album entitled "Out Among the Stars" arrived.
The 40-second clip opens with Cash's son, John Carter Cash, talking about the recordings. "When my parents passed away, it became necessary to go through this material. We found these recordings that were produced by Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s," he says. "They were beautiful."
The trailer also includes a snippet of a track called "You Used to Love Me a Lot". Deep-voiced Cash can be heard singing about losing love over the sound of guitar. The song was originally recorded by David Allan Coe in 1984
In addition to "You Used to Love Me a Lot", Cash's posthumous album will feature 11 tracks including his duet with wife June Carter Cash and country star Waylon Jennings.
Cash Jr. discovered the songs in 2012 when cataloging his parents' recordings in Hendersonville, Tennessee and at the Sony Music Archives. "We were like, my goodness, this is a beautiful record that nobody has ever heard," he told the Associated Press earlier this month. "Johnny Cash is in the very prime of his voice for his lifetime. He's pitch-perfect."
