(Gibson) A trailer for the forthcoming "lost" Johnny Cash album, Out Among the Stars, has been posted online. The album comprises 12 previously unheard tracks and will be out on March 24, 2014. The songs, which were recorded in Nashville, Tennessee in 1981 and 1111 Sound Studios in 1984, were discovered by his son John Carter Cash at the Sony Music Archives.

John Carter Cash says: "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 they were beautiful." He pressed the tracks despite Cash's then label Columbia's original refusal to release the tapes in the '80s. "We were like, 'My goodness, this is a beautiful record that nobody has ever heard.'"

The songs include duets with Johnny's wife June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings, while Marty Stuart a member of Cash's backing band has been quoted as saying that he was "in the very prime of his voice for his lifetime" and that Cash sounds "pitch perfect" on the recordings.
