The Man in Black is back.

Ten years after Johnny Cash's death, the estate of the country music pioneer is releasing "Out Among the Stars," a never-before-heard album he recorded in 1981 and 1984 with producer Billy Sherrill. Columbia Records never released the record, which then vanished when Cash left the label in 1986.

The tapes were discovered last year along with many other items kept by Cash and his late wife, June Carter Cash.

"They never threw anything away," Cash's son, John Carter Cash, told The Associated Press. "They kept everything in their lives. They had an archive that had everything in it from the original audio tapes from 'The Johnny Cash Show' to random things like a camel saddle, a gift from the prince of Saudi Arabia."

The album is scheduled for a March 25 release.

Long an American pop cultural icon, Cash died Sept. 12, 2003, at age 71. He's known for hits that include "Walk the Line," "Ring of Fire," and "A Boy Named Sue."

The songs on "Out Among the Stars" reflect a trying period in Cash's life, according to the late singer's official website.

Sherrill was a Country Music Hall of Famer and president of CBS Records, Nashville, when he produced the 12 tracks, which included duets with June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings.

"When my parents passed away, it became necessary to go through this material," John Carter Cash said in a release. "We found these recordings that were produced by Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s ... they were beautiful."

Many musicians have had albums released posthumously, including John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Ray Charles, Janis Joplin, Tupac Shakur, and Amy Winehouse.
