Video for unreleased Johnny Cash song 'She Used To Love Me A Lot' revealed – watch

John Hillcoat directed the promo in homage to the late singer

The video for a previously unreleased Johnny Cash track 'She Used To Love Me A Lot' has been released – watch it above.

John Hillcoat, the man behind films including The Proposition, The Road and Lawless, directed the video in homage to the late singer.

'She Used To Love Me A Lot' features on the album 'Out Among The Stars', a collection of 13 lost Johnny Cash recordings from the early 1980s, which will be released on March 31. The tracks, which were recorded between 1981 and 1984, include duets with wife June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings. The tapes were discovered by archivists at Legacy records and the country legend's son, John Carter Cash.

The video was filmed over the course of a month across the US. Speaking about the track, John Hillcoat revealed: "The lyrics seemed to speak to America as it is now, to the nation that loved him and to the great divide he fought so hard against. This divide has only grown exponentially since he died, so we wanted to show America under this stark light and as a homage to the very reason Cash always wore black: to the shameful increase of the disenfranchised and outsiders.

"At the same time, we wanted to reference the great man's own struggle and journey from the love of his life to the burnt-out ruins of his infamous lake house home, personal photographs, the cave where he tried to take his life but then turned it all around, the place he last recorded in and his last photo before his passing."

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)

'I Drove Her Out Of My Mind'
'Tennessee'
'Rock And Roll Shoes'
