Rosanne Cash to Release New Album in 2014
Rosanne Cash will kick off the new year with a brand new album. The songstress, whose last album was ‘The List’ in 2009, will release ‘The River & the Thread’ on Jan. 14, 2014.
“If I never make another album I will be content, because I made this one,” Cash says of the 11-track album. The daughter of the Man in Black wrote all of the songs with her longtime collaborator — and husband of 18 years — John Leventhal, who also served as the project’s producer, arranger and guitarist.
Several artists contributed to the record, including Rodney Crowell, Kris Kristofferson, Allison Moorer, John Prine, Tony Joe White, the Civil Wars‘ John Paul White and Gabe Witcher from The Punch Brothers.
The album covers a wide scope of American history, from the Civil War era, to the New Deal through the eyes of a farmer in Arkansas, all the way to the current generation in Mobile, Ala.
The 58-year-old will celebrate the upcoming release with a three-day residency at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., beginning on Dec. 5. Events will include a concert, a round robin with Leventhal, Crowell, Cory Chisel and Amy Helm and a conversation with US Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey.
Cash will also play several shows over the next few months, including stops in New York and New Jersey, as well as a concert in Ontario, Canada. Follow all of her tour updates here.
