Johnny Cash’s posthumous album Songwriter has been officially released.


The album features 11 songs recorded in 1993. Cash shelved the project to release 1994’s American Recordings instead. Cash’s son John discovered the recordings and worked with producer David R. Ferguson to complete the album. The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach is featured on the track “Spotlight”.

“It was the thrill of a lifetime to be able to play guitar on a Johnny Cash song,” Dan Auerbach said in a statement. “Hearing his voice through the speakers in my studio sent chills down my spine. I can’t thank John Carter and [producer David] Fergie [Ferguson] enough for including me.”
