To celebrate what would have been Johnny’s 86th birthday this week, Legacy Recordings has released a video of Chris Cornell's recording and chatting about his cover version of 'You Never Knew My Mind'.
One of Chris Cornell's final solo recordings, the song is featured on ‘Johnny Cash: Forever Words', which is out on 6 April.
Said Chris Cornell of Cash at the time he recorded the song: “I met the man once or twice in my life, and he was so gracious and he was such an influence on me as a musician. And he also covered a song that I wrote.
"Since that time, I’ve felt like he’s maybe one of the bigger presences in my life, in terms of artists that I’m a fan of.”
Watch Chris Cornell in the studio recording the track and discussing his relationship with Cash:
The album is comprised of Cash’s unknown poetry, lyrics, and letters, now set to music by an all-star array of contemporary artists. Along with Cornell, the album features new songs by Ruston Kelly & Kacey Musgraves, Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Kris Kristofferson & Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, John Mellencamp, Carlene Carter, Elvis Costello, The Jayhawks and more.
