The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach Featured On New Johnny Cash Song ‘Spotlight’


The Black KeysDan Auerbach features on a new Johnny Cash song, “Spotlight,” that has been unearthed for the late musician’s forthcoming posthumous album, Songwriter.

Cash wrote and recorded “Spotlight” for a demo session in 1993. Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, resurrected his vocals and arrangement for the new album.

“Spotlight” is the second preview from Songwriter following the earlier single “Well Alright.”

“It was the thrill of a lifetime to be able to play guitar on a Johnny Cash song,” Auerbach said in a statement. “Hearing his voice through the speakers in my studio sent chills down my spine. I can’t thank John Carter and Fergie enough for including me.”

John Carter Cash, who is the co-producer of Songwriter alongside David “Fergie” Ferguson, added, “It was great to have Dan be a part of ‘Spotlight’ and to add his guitar tones and his sounds to this incredible song. I think it really opened it up into a different direction.”
