It’s been more than a decade since his death, but the Man in Black is having a good year. An album of recently discovered studio recordings from the 80s, Out Among the Stars, will be released later this month. Australian director John Hillcoat (The Road, Lawless) is premiering a brand-new video for the song “She Used to Love Me a Lot.”
The black-and-white video was filmed across the U.S. and features images exemplifying the spirit of Johnny Cash. The landscapes, stark fields, lonely, shuttered buildings, the downtrodden and prisons are all evocative of the spirit of Cash and his lyrics.
“At the same time, we wanted to reference the great man’s own struggle and journey from the love of his life to…the cave where he tried to take his life but then turned it all around, the place he last recorded in and his last photo before his passing,” Hillcoat said.
Out Among the Stars will be released March 25.
