The last song ever wrote before his death in September 2003, tentatively titled "Like the 309," will be released on a new album, "American V: A Hundred Highways," set for a July 4 release.

The album, which was recorded with producer Rick Rubin, also includes Cash's other music dubbed "I Came to Believe" and will be released via American Recordings/Lost Highway.

In addition to Cash's song, "American V: A Hundred Highways" also will include music written by , Hank Williams and Gordon Lightfoot, spiritual ballads, and love songs.
