Roseanne Cash Couldn’t Avoid ‘Black Cadillac’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Roseanne Cash admits she couldn’t have avoided recording her latest album, Black Cadillac, even if she wanted to.

The album is her musical reaction to the deaths of her father Johnny Cash, mother Vivian Liberto and stepmother June Carter Cash. Roseanne confesses she couldn’t avoid the songs. Some of them wouldn’t let her sleep until they were written.

Cash says the title track was written six weeks before Carter’s death and considers the tune’s dark tone as a “postcard from the future.”

Still, it wasn’t until she finished five of the songs that she realized she was working on a concept album.

Cash admits the record is very personal and contains “all sorts of archival detail,” both personal and musical.

Still, she thinks the average person will still be able to relate because “the personal bits don’t obliterate the universal.”

Cash says songs from the Black Cadillac sessions will figure prominently in live sets on her upcoming tour, which kicks off July 7 in Westhampton Beach, New York.
