Rosanne Cash has unveiled two songs, “Everyone But Me” and “She Remembers Everything,” from a forthcoming album, out later this year.
In November, the celebrated singer-songwriter will release She Remembers Everything, her 14th (!) album and her first in four years. The album, according to a press release, grapples with a flawed world from a feminine perspective, and is informed by the stories and testimonies by sexual assault survivors.
“There is a woman’s real life, complex experiences and layered understanding in these songs,” Cash commented via the press release. “I could not have written them ten years ago—not even close. Time is shorter, I have more to say.”
Sam Phillips features on the melancholic title track that opens with the wondering lines, “Who knows who she used to be before it all went dark / Was she like a streak of fire, a painted glass, a beating heart?” The piano-driven “Everyone But Me” is similarly mournful and beautiful, with Cash’s tender yet commanding voice situated front and center.
Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson and Colin Meloy will also guest on She Remembers Everything, which is due November 2 on Blue Note Records.
