ROSANNE CASH TO RELEASE HER NEW ALBUM, THE LIST, OCTOBER 6
SPECIAL GUESTS INCLUDE ELVIS COSTELLO, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, JEFF TWEEDY AND RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash will release her 12th studio album, entitled The List, on Manhattan Records on October 6, 2009. The new LP features Cash's contemporary interpretations of 12 classic songs culled from a list of essential country tunes that her legendary father Johnny gave her in 1973, filtered through her own unique, sophisticated perspective.
Known primarily for her stellar songwriting, Cash showcases her incredible voice on The List — her first-ever covers record. As a result, the album is Rosanne Cash like you've never heard her before as she embraces her heritage and sings for the pure love and beauty of these songs which have shaped who she is as an artist.
Produced and arranged by Grammy winner John Leventhal (Cash's husband, who also contributes guitar work throughout), The List includes Cash's covers of songs with assistance of notable musicians like Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy and Rufus Wainwright.
The List is the first album Cash has made since she underwent surgery in 2007 for a benign brain condition, from which she has fully recovered.
