Recorded during the same sessions that brought the posthumous American V: A Hundred Highways in 2006, the Rick Rubin-produced American VI: Ain't No Grave will be available through American Recordings/Lost Highway on February 26.
Rubin said: "Johnny said that recording was his main reason for being alive. I think it was the only thing that kept him going.
"He had tremendous faith, he didn't really have fear and he already was dealing with pain; I think he had acceptance. When he knew he was going to die, he was calm and matter of fact about it, and... that was it."
Cash died on September 12, 2003, four months after the passing of his wife and musical collaborator June Carter Cash.
