Listen: New Rosanne Cash Album, ‘The River & The Thread’

Rosanne Cash’s new album, The River & ZThe Sea, is now streaming at NPR’s “First Listen.”

From the NPR website:

Each song is rooted in the Southern soil connecting the old Cash homestead in Arkansas to the family’s ancestral Virginia homeland, expanding to survey the family’s artistic roots in Alabama and Tennessee. Some narratives are fictional, while others mine family lore. Each unfolds in a subtle arc made three-dimensional by Cash’s introspective lyrics and the genre-dissolving blend of country, soul and torch songs that she and her husband and producer, John Leventhal, cultivate.
