Johnny Cash tribute album details revealed

Johnny Cash Head Shot

Johnny Cash’s 1964 album, Bitter Tears: Ballads Of The American Indian, has been re-recorded by a slew of contemporary musicians to mark it’s 50th anniversary.

Artists including Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Kris Kristofferson and Emmylou Harris are all involved, reworking songs that were originally intended to highlight the mistreatment of Native Americans at the hands of settlers.

The new version of the album, titled Look Again To The Wind: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited, will be released by Sony Music Masterworks on the 19th of August.

“Prior to Bitter Tears, the conversation about Native American rights had not really been had,” says Joe Henry, Look Again’s producer. “At a very significant moment in his trajectory, Johnny Cash was willing to draw a line and insist that this be considered a human rights issue, alongside the civil rights issue that was coming to fruition in 1964. But he also felt that the record had never been heard, so there’s a real sense that we’re being asked to carry it forward.”

The full tracklisting for the album is as follows:

“As Long As The Grass Shall Grow” (Gillian Welch & David Rawlings)
“Apache Tears” (Emmylou Harris w/the Milk Carton Kids)
“Custer” (Steve Earle w/the Milk Carton Kids)
“The Talking Leaves” (Nancy Blake w/Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings)
“The Ballad Of Ira Hayes” (Kris Kristofferson w/Gillian Welch and David Rawlings)
“Drums” (Norman Blake w/Nancy Blake, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings)
“Apache Tears (Reprise)” (Gillian Welch and David Rawlings)
“White Girl” (Milk Carton Kids)
“The Vanishing Race” (Rhiannon Giddens)
“As Long As The Grass Shall Grow (Reprise)” (Nancy Blake, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings)
“Look Again To The Wind” (Bill Miller)
