Undercover reports:

The man in black Johnny Cash is getting hip at a time when most of his contemporise[sic] are getting hip replacements. Cash covers Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode on his new album America IV : The Man Comes Around.

The choice of songs is interesting. Of the previous electronica hit "Personal Jesus", not turned into a gospel song Cash Morning Edition host Bob Edwards "To me it's a very fine, fine evangelical song, although I don't think that's why it was written. It's where do you find your comfort, your counsel, your shoulder to lean on, your hand to hold to, your personal Jesus."

 The Nine Inch Nails track 'Hurt' was originally featured on 'The Downward Spiral' from 1994, an album most would find hard to believe has anywhere near one of Johnny Cash's CD players.

Cash also has Aussie Nick Cave guest on vocals. The pair duet on the Hank Williams country classic "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry". Cash covered Cave's 'The Mercy Seat' on his last album.

American IV : The Man Comes Around is the 4th Johnny Cash album produced by Rick Rubin, better known for his work with Red Hot Chili Peppers.

And if you think that's all there is to say, just one more bit � the Chili Peppers John Fruciante plays guitar on this new Cash album (but that's nothing new, Flea played bass on the last one).

Johnny Cash is now 70 years old and started writing songs when he was 12.  The country legend first recorded in 1955 with Sam Phillips in Nashville.

 Phillips also discovered Elvis Presley.
