A trailer for the forthcoming lost Johnny Cash album 'Out Among The Stars' has been revealed – click below to watch.

It was revealed earlier this month that the late singer's estate had decided to release the album, which is made up of 12 previously unheard tracks and will be out on March 24, 2014. The songs, which were recorded in Nashville, Tennessee in 1981 and 1111 Sound Studios in 1984, were discovered by his son John Carter Cash at the Sony Music Archives.

He said: "When my parents passed away, it became necessary to go through this material. We found these recordings that were produced by Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s… they were beautiful." He pressed the tracks despite Cash's then label Columbia's original refusal to release the tapes in the '80s

The songs include duets with the singer's wife June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings, while Marty Stuart – a member of Cash’s backing band – has been quoted as saying that he was "in the very prime of his voice for his lifetime" and that Cash sounds "pitch perfect" on the recordings.

The tracklisting for 'Out Among The Stars' is as follows:

'Out Among The Stars'
'Baby Ride Easy' (feat. June Carter Cash)
'She Used To Love Me A Lot'
'After All'
'I'm Movin' On' (feat. Waylon Jennings)
'If I Told You Who It Was'
'Call Your Mother'
'I Drove Her Out Of My Mind'
'Tennessee'
'Rock And Roll Shoes'
'Don't You Think It's Come Our Time' (feat. June Carter Cash)
'I Came To Believe'


'Out Among The Stars' will be the fourth posthumous release since Cash's death in 2003, and the first since 2010's 'American VI: Ain't No Grave'.
