JUST IN: Previously UNHEARD Johnny Cash Song Released, Listen To It Here!

Now THIS is what I like! I bet you weren’t expecting to hear a new song from Johnny Cash in 2024.

The legendary country musician’s estate released a previously unheard track from the Man in Black titled “Well Alright.”

This single is a promo for an upcoming album called “Songwriter” featuring 11 previously recorded yet unpublished tracks from the late and legendary artist.

I don’t know about you, but I prefer Cash, ZZ Top, Skynyrd, 38 Special, and Creedence Clearwater Revival to the likes of Taylor Swift and Beyonce.

Here’s the previously unheard “Well Alright” from Johnny Cash, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Rolling Stone explained how the new album came to be:

After Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, rediscovered the LSI demos, he stripped the tapes down to just his father’s vocals and acoustic guitar.

He then enlisted the help of co-producer David Ferguson (Cash’s go-to engineer during the Eighties and Nineties), and an array of musicians, including former Cash collaborators Marty Stuart and Dave Roe, to add new instrumentation to the songs.

Guitar World writes: “Bob Dylan says he’s one of the greatest writers of all of American written music and I agree. I want to put that in the forefront”: New posthumous Johnny Cash album features Marty Stuart and Dan Auerbach – and puts the spotlight back on the Man in Black.”

The Guardian had this to say about the newly released song:

It arrives decorated with twanging reverb-heavy electric guitar, upright bass and Cash’s preferred boom-chicka-boom rhythm.

It’s fun and lightweight, more in the vein of his 1976 hit One Piece At a Time than the songs that, as his daughter Rosanne once put it “reflected the sadness, the convulsions … that mythic dark night of the soul that he went through so many times”.
