Snoop Dogg masterminds Johnny Cash remix album

Beyonce's father is also involved in new version of legend's songs

Snoop Dogg has masterminded a new remix album of songs by Johnny Cash.

The unlikely pairing comes in the form of ‘Johnny Cash Remixed’, a compilation which sees the Man In Black‘s music reworked by artists including Alabama 3, Sonny J and The Heavy.

Dogg, who appears on a version of ‘I Walk The Line’, co-executive produced the album alongside Cash‘s son John Carter Cash and Beyonce‘s father Mathew Knowles.

The project comes with the blessing of Cash‘s estate, as Carter Cash explained: “My father made his stead defying the expected and accepted way of things. He set the standard at the same time. He would have loved this remix record. While it stays true to the original recordings, the CD touches on undiscovered ground. My father was about staying true to tradition while creating groundbreaking music.”

The songs in question were all recorded between 1956-59 with Cash‘s first band the Tennessee Two.

The tracklisting is:

‘Get Rhythm’ (Philip Steir Remix)
‘Big River’ (Count de Money Remix)
