Album: Johnny Cash And The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Release date: November 13, 2020
17 years after his death, Johnny Cash's most iconic songs are being reinterpreted with his vocals by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and will be released as an album in November.
Produced by Nick Patrick and Don Reedman and recorded at the fabled Abbey Road Studio 2, Johnny Cash and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is the latest in a series of RPO albums showcasing classic recordings by timeless artists in sublime new musical settings. Producers Reedman and Patrick consulted with John Carter Cash, who serves as Executive Producer, in making the career-spanning selection of 12 Johnny Cash master recordings centering the album.
Performances range from archetypal Cash classics like "Man In Black" and "Ring Of Fire" to essential musical collaborations including "Girl From The North Country" (Bob Dylan with Johnny Cash), "The Loving Gift" (with June Carter Cash) and "Highwayman" (with Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and Johnny Cash).
Below, you can listen to their interpretation of his iconic "Ring of Fire" and below, hear Johnny's son John Carter Cash talk about the project and how it came to be.
