Watch The New Video From Johnny Cash’s Lost Recordings

On March 25, Johnny Cash will release a new album. It's called Out Among the Stars, and was originally recorded by the Man in Black between 1981 and 1984 — but never released (apparently because Columbia Records thought it sounded too much like a Johnny Cash record and wouldn't sell). It was discovered by Cash's son, John Carter Cash, and contains 12 studio recordings, which have been lightly touched up and prepped for wide release. To kick things off, a music video of one of the songs, "She Used to Love Me a Lot," was released last night. It's a dark song with an appropriately dark video, which was directed by John Hillcoat (the guy who directed Lawless and The Road). 

“I’ve been a lifelong fan,” Hillcoat told The Guardian. “The first film I made was a prison film [Ghosts … of the Civil Dead] so there’s definitely a connection there with the whole Folsom prison thing. I was also inspired by his voice, which has a truth to it at all times — that’s always helped me in terms of working with actors, no matter how big.”

You can watch the whole thing in the video above. 

And if the video whets your appetite for some more Johnny Cash, we've got you covered. You can check out this playlist of 25 of his all-time best songs.

Or in the video below, you can watch country singer Brett Kissel's Best Story Ever, which is about none other than Johnny Cash.
