I’ve already listened to this many times since it first surfaced late last week, but I thought I’d drop it on for a share too. Back in the mid 90s, Johnny Cash covered Soundgarden’s Rusty Cage. Long after Cash passed away, Chris Cornell returned the sentiment and recorded a song with Cash’s own words as lyrics, and the end result gives me chills. Not only is Cornell’s voice stunning on the acoustic track (as expected), but now that we’ve lost both legends, listening to You Never Knew My Mind is also unimaginably heartbreaking. The recording is part of a new compilation named Johnny Cash: Forever Words, on which an array of musicians creates new songs out of unpublished Cash works. The compilation arrives April 6th. Pre-order, here.
