Getting A Deluxe Treatment

Legacy Recordings is releasing an expanded edition of Johnny Cash’s 2018 ‘Forever Words’ album. The original compilation featured Cash’s poetry and lyrics set to music for the first time with the songs recorded by artists like Chris Cornell, Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson, Kacey Musgraves, and Brad Paisley. The deluxe reissue has 18 new songs in addition to the original 16 tracks.

Released digitally via streaming platforms in four “waves”, the first one was streamed last Friday, October 23. The second installment will be out on December 11, the third one on February 5, 2021, and the final wave on April 2, 2021.

John Carter Cash said, “My father touched the world of music in ways still evolving. The original body of work in Forever Words held some of Dad’s best unreleased writings, put to music by some of the most prolific artists alive today. But there was more: poetry and lyrics that no one had ever seen, whose depth demanded the continuance of the project. And, with true artists who found melody and beauty in these unseen words, the recordings continued. Looking back now, I feel Dad would be proud to know his voice and spirit carry on here, in these Forever Words.”
