Rosanne Cash premieres 'Ghost Brothers' song

"You Don't Know Me" is from the forthcoming Ghost Brothers of Darkland County album. The album also features Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Ryan Bingham and Kris Kristofferson. The all-star recording is set for a June 4 release.
A new Rosanne Cash track would be exciting all by itself. But make it a collaboration with Stephen King, John Mellencamp and T Bone Burnett, and it becomes something altogether more impressive.
You Don't Know Me, premiering at USA TODAY, is Cash's contribution to the all-star recording of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a musical featuring libretto by King, music and lyrics by Mellencamp and production from Burnett. The album is set for a June 4 release.
"You Don't Know Me is a great song, whether you hear it within the Ghost Brothers story or all by itself," says Cash, who sings in the character of Monique, the wife of a man whose brothers died in an apparent murder/suicide. "Whenever John, Stephen and T Bone ask you to be a part of something, the answer has to be yes, doesn't it?"
The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County album also features Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Neko Case, Taj Mahal, Ryan Bingham, Kris Kristofferson and others. King, Mellencamp and Burnett spent 13 years collaborating on the music, which premiered last spring in Atlanta.
