Rosanne Cash is set to release her first new album in nearly five years and has unveiled the first two tracks from the LP, titled She Remembers Everything. Out November 2nd on Blue Note Records, the album follows the triptych of the deeply personal Black Cadillac, The List and The River & the Thread, through which the singer-songwriter dealt with the loss of her father, Johnny Cash, and the deaths of her mother and stepmother, while also exploring her family’s Southern heritage.
In advance of the new album’s release, Cash has issued two tracks from the collection, the profoundly stirring and unsettling title cut, and the moving, grief-consumed “Everyone But Me.”
With She Remembers Everything, which features contributions from Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson, Colin Meloy, and Sam Phillips, Cash crafts uniquely textured stories from a feminine perspective. Strikingly personal and expressive, the new music finds the artist working from a perspective she notes has been previously unavailable to her.
“There is a woman’s real life, complex experiences and layered understanding in these songs,” Cash says. “I could not have written them 10 years ago — not even close. Time is shorter, I have more to say.”
She Remembers Everything was recorded in Portland, Oregon, and New York City, with production by Tucker Martine and Cash’s husband, John Leventhal, respectively. In addition to the 10-song release, a deluxe version of She Remembers Everything with three bonus tracks will be released digitally and as a limited-edition casebound book/CD. Also available will be a limited-edition box set, the She Remembers Everything Memory Box, which includes the casebound book and CD; personal letters of correspondence signed by Cash and exchanged between the singer and T Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, Sam Phillips, Joe Henry, Tucker Martine and John Leventhal; an exclusive Live at SFJAZZ CD recorded in 2017 featuring Cash performing alongside Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams; and She Remembers Everything on pink vinyl. There’s also a copy of Bird on a Blade, a new book of lyrics and illustration by Rosanne Cash and Dan Rizzie published by UT Press, along with an 8″ x 10″ printed lithograph featuring an original Rizzie illustration from the book.
Cash will tour extensively in conjunction with the new album’s release. She Remembers Everything is now available for pre-order.
