This is Rosanne Cash's first album in more than four years, written with her longtime collaborator (and husband) John Leventhal. The album richly evokes the Southern landscape - physical, musical, emotional - and examines the indelible impressions it has made on her.

This album is licensed for download from Universal Music Group.

The River & The Thread is sweeping in its breadth, capturing a unique, multi-generational cast of characters - from a Civil War soldier off to fight in Virginia to a New Deal-era farmer in Arkansas to a contemporary Mobile, AL couple. While Cash and Leventhal found inspiration in the many musical styles associated with the South - swampy Delta blues, gospel, Appalachian folk, country and rock, to name a few - this is a completely contemporary collection. Cash's crystalline voice and Leventhal's compelling guitar work are at the heart of the album, and they bring in additional instrumentation to suit the tone of each particular song - from the delicate orchestral passages of 'Night School', (which nods to Stephen Foster, who also had a deep affection for the South) to the ghostly keyboards of album closer 'Money Road'.

'Cash matches styles to stories, showing her mastery of Southern music's many dialects'. NPR Music

'Mesmerizing... Cash paints her masterpiece'. UNCUT

'Cash comes full circle as a storyteller and singer of exceptional grace and grit. It's among her finest work in a 35-year career, assured and at ease, and one of 2014's first great albums'. Boston Globe

'A captivating and sometimes haunting album that's among the finest of her career'. USA Today

'The 11 songs blend Tennessee flattop twang with gospel, the blues, and even hints of jazz... Dust Bowl ballads to Dusty Springfield pop'. Associated Press

'A timeless work'. Fresh Air

'It's an album we'll be looking at in December when it's time to single out the most powerful works of 2014'. Los Angeles Times
