Another collection of Johnny Cash-inspired music will soon be available for purchase, according to Billboard. Producer Joe Henry (Rodney Crowell, Carolina Chocolate Drops) has signed on to produce a multi-artist project for Sony Masterworks re-creating Cash’s controversial 1964 album Bitter Tears, a conceptual collection that addresses the plight of Native Americans.

“It was much-maligned when it came out,” Henry says. “There was a very public battle with Columbia Records about the release of the record, and subsequently it was not very well promoted or very widely heard.” Henry plans to use a small group of artists on the project, but none have been announced yet. Plans are set for recording to begin on the project in late January/early February in Nashville and California.
