The only child of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, John Carter Cash, told The Guardian that enough of his legendary father's unreleased music exists for a few more albums down the road.

A number of albums have been offered since the singer's 2003 death. "Out Among the Stars," comprised of music recorded in the 1980s, came out this week. Producer Rick Rubin has released two other posthumous Johnny Cash albums - "American V: A Hundred Highways" in 2006 and "American VI: Ain't No Grave" in 2010.

In addition, two months after Cash's death, a five-disc boxed set was sold, containing outtakes and alternate versions of previously released material as well as a collection of gospel songs.

"Out Among the Stars" contains 12 previously unreleased songs recorded with producer Billy Sherrill in 1981 and 1984, including duets with June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings. John Carter Cash told the Associated Press in 2013, of uncovering the recordings, "We were like, my goodness, this is a beautiful record that nobody has ever heard."
