CHRIS CORNELL Turned A Poem By JOHNNY CASH Into A Gripping Beauty…

You Never Knew My Mind by JOHNNY CASH
Put to music by CHRIS CORNELL

In 1996 the late great JOHNNY CASH (happy birthday wherever you are, legend – Cash was born 26 Feb 1932, 86 years ago today) recorded a cover of Soundgarden’s track ‘Rusty Cage’ written by the late great CHRIS CORNELL. Almost 20 years later, Cornell put a discovered Cash poem to music, creating a spine-chilling new song ‘YOU NEVER KNEW MY MIND‘. Unfortunately, one of Cornell’s final recordings.

The song is featured on ‘JOHNNY CASH: FOREVER WORDS’ out April 6 on Legacy Recordings . The album contains Cash’s unknown poetry, lyrics, and letters, now set to music by impressive, contemporary artists. Along with Cornell, the record 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.

Here’s the gripping interpretation of captivating Johnny Cash poem
‘YOU NEVER KNEW MY MIND’ by Chris Cornell

Rest in peace, legends…
