Cash, Johnny - Unchained
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Cash – The autobiography of Johnny Cash
I’m still going strong with Rick Rubin and American Records. I made a second album, Unchained, with a band (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Marty Stuart, and others), and we're planning, another, perhaps two. So my creative blood is up and I'm having a good time.
These days, when songs start forcing their way up through me, I can allow myself a fair expectation that if I do my part with them, a significant number of people might hear them. I have no idea what my long-term recording future will hold. Whatever it is, I'm looking forward to it. I'm certainly anticipating my next couple of projects with pleasure.
At this point we have a large backlog of good songs, so the next album will probably be a selection of those and perhaps some others I haven't met or written yet, recorded with or without a band; we'll see.
The other project really has my blood up.
Rick and I are talking about mapping out a selection of spiritual songs - not old gospel music but contemporary songs I've found and written that speak of the spirit – and then recording them in a cathedral.
Rick has scouted out a location that might work. I can't wait.
