With all the buzz about Rosanne Cash’s modern-day classic The List, and her memoir, Composed, we’re delighted to hear about her next project with Billy Bragg and Joe Henry. We adored Bragg’s work with Wilco on the Mermaid Avenue CDs, as well as Henry’s collaboration with Loudon Wainwright III on Strange Weirdos.
The three artists will team up in November for a new album due some time in 2011. The project is a continuation of Henry’s biannual song cycle project in Germany, where Bragg and Cash first sang together, and the two have been planning a collaboration ever since.
Bragg considers Cash a great songwriter, and he is especially fond of her Black Cadillac release.
