English folk singer and activist to collaborate with daughter of legendary country singer this November


Billy Bragg's next album will be a collaboration with singer Rosanne Cash, he revealed this week. The English rabble-rouser has already started writing new songs, and plans to record with Cash and producer Joe Henry in Los Angeles this November.

Cash, the daughter of country legend Johnny Cash, met Bragg at the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele festival in Germany. "We had a great time singing together and since then we've been plotting on trying to get into the studio," Bragg told Billboard. They were reportedly invited to the event by Henry, who had curated a series of song-cycles featuring jazz players Bill Frisell and Brad Mehldau.
