Johnny Cash songs, originally recorded in 1993, are set to be released


Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. In his nearly half-century as an artist, Johnny Cash made a lot of music. A lot of it you may have heard, but many records never saw the light of day. Well, an album he initially recorded in 1993 is finally set to release. The project is called "Songwriter." It was initially shelved, but Cash's son recruited some of Cash's oldest collaborators to finish the project. The album comes out June 28. It's MORNING EDITION.
