64 Never Heard Johnny Cash Songs Release

Fans of the late Johnny Cash have a lot to keep them occupied: A box set being released Tuesday contains a staggering 64 never-heard-before recordings.

The five-disc box, “Unearthed,” is all material recorded during the last decade, during Cash’s fruitful partnership with Rick Rubin, who had been known best as a rap and rock producer.

Cash died September 12 at age 71 of complications from diabetes.

“It seems like a nice punctuation,” Rubin said. “It seems like a bookend with the beginning of his career and the Sun [Records] work. It’s a beautiful way to sum things up.”

The set includes a duet with the late Joe Strummer on Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song,” and collaborations with Fiona Apple, Nick Cave, Carl Perkins and Glen Campbell. Cash tackles two Neil Young songs, “Heart of Gold” and “Pocahontas,” as well as material by Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Steve Earle, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry and Willie Nelson.
