There’s something to be said about long-lost music finally seeing the light of day. A certain mystery, nostalgia, and, of course, curiosity. Well Johnny Cash fans, prepare yourself, because we have a regular Eddie and the Cruisers situation on our hands. An album Cash recorded in the early 1980s with Billy Sherrill is about to be released. Titled Out Among the Stars, the album was previously shelved by Columbia Records and later reported to have disappeared. As it turns out, Cash and his wife June Carter Cash had hidden the tapes and they were just discovered last year by their son John Carter Cash, who worked with Legacy Recordings to make the new release happen. Out Among the Stars will be released on March 25, 2014.
