‘Like The 309′, the final song written by the legendary Johnny Cash, is set to be released on the latest posthumous album ‘American V: A Hundred Highways’. The contents of the album were recorded with producer Rick Rubin in the months prior to Cash’s death back in September of 2003. A further track written by the singer, ‘I Came To Believe’, which was written earlier in his career and deals with the subjects of addiction and salvation will also be included on the long player.
Rubin has said in a statement: “These songs are Johnny’s final statement. They are the truest reflection of the music that was central to his life at the time. This is the music that Johnny wanted us to hear. I think that ‘American V’ may be my favourite of all of the albums in the American series. It’s different from the others, it has a much different character. I think that this is as strong an album as Johnny ever made.”
