"I mean, all of that came cross, you know, in John Lennon's voice in the obsessive -ness of the lyrics like he standing on her doorstep looking through a window. And he sees her even though she says, she's not there. It's just so intriguing and mysterious, and I thought well, this is what happens when you're an adult you step into this world of romantic obsessions. And inevitable loss. And then you know, I saw in my own parents merit in. There was something about it. I think I tried to write songs like that for a long time. Maybe I'm still trying to write songs like, but it was also a really seamless thing between the story in the song knows really sharp visual images in this way. All in John Lennon's voice, be known yells out. I nearly died. Just so raw than beautiful. Yeah. Crazy powerful song. Isn't it? Yeah. We got to speak to Paul actually this year, Paul McCartney, and he talked about when he writes, the adopts the persona sometimes of another office store songwriter to so free himself from his own. So of a pros to is that something you've ever done any songwriting tried to take on the people. I mean. You know, much deeper songwriter than I am in. I imagine that it's easy for him to go. All right in the voice of Chuck bari-ara, right in the voice of Ella, Fitzgerald, or whatever. I know that a few times I've written songs imagining other people singing them, but I don't know I've written will. I think I've tried to write with the structure of the Beatles. You know that verse chorus middle aged structure because I really deconstructed that for myself at an early age. But you know, I couldn't write subterranean homesick blues. Make it work. That's very particular to exceptional songwriter name Bob Dylan, but I do try to sometimes right third person and like song on the river in the thread when the master calls the role that was written totally to your characters voices. Wrote the lyrics with Rodney Crowell in John Leventhal the music. That was probably the farthest I've gone from writing from my own experience. But it was really beautiful experience to ride it. We look that song. You set yourself quiet task without what did new Canada got a historical narrative and kind of whites of history behind. Yeah. Yeah. And you know that line about can the union be preserved in having it mean both things both the country and the couple just loved that loved going deep inside those characters it actually was deeply moving. Amir. Remember crying more than once writing the lyrics in Ron news. Great. You know, Rodney is very meticulous. He's very disciplined as a songwriter. And it was annoying sometimes, but we worked well together. When the master calls. We writing thinking that you didn't really have any designs on being a professional musician songwriter until you renew your twenties. No, I started writing songs at eighteen. Right. So I thought I would just write songs I really didn't want to make records or perform or tour. Just I was really shine private person. I thought writing songs with just the greatest profession to send them out into the world to other people could sing them. I just loved that idea. But then you know, I made these demos of my songs, and I got a recording contract. And then I was making albums and then became a performer to promote those albums, and I grew into my life. I grew into what I do. Now was a kind of a moment where you wrote the song that you felt so tend to Cohen some of our guests have got those kind of temple songs, you know. Yeah.

Lori McKenna and Sheryl Crowe all singing on by degrees. Deborah emailed your album seven year ache became the soundtrack for painful time in my life. You gave voice to my heartbreak and gave me the strength to walk away from an unhappy marriage. I am forever grateful. Tell us about that album seven year ache. Yeah. Yeah. That was my second album in states. I had made one in Europe before that just kind of died a. Instant death. Mitch was actually a good thing. But I think that that's when I felt I broke through as a songwriter and was twenty four years old. And didn't know what I was doing. Sometimes I sing that song in concert now. And I think how did that young girl. Right that so, but there were there were so mom raw moments on that record. I at that means a lot to me that she says the it gave her strength to leave an unhappy marriage. You know, what's interesting is that when you write songs, and you don't know what it's going to mean to your audience. You know, what it means to you? But that's why hesitate to say what songs are about and take away someone else's interpretation. Yeah. Got never know how it's gonna do for somebody. You hope it does something that they bring their own life in their own feelings to it and leave it open for their own how they're going to use it in their own psyche. Who has your songwriting process changed over the years? You say you look back at that. At the the twenty something gal who wrote that compared to who you are. Now, how has that process? Volved for you. I'm not so worried that it's going to go away, you know, last early on. I every time I would write something that I thought was good. I think well, that's it never gonna write another song akin. And then eventually it would come back. You know, I had this fear that I had a quota at birth. I don't think like that anymore. So that's changed for me. And I have more confidence in not spelling things out. And leaving more ambiguity in the lyrics, and I'm more comfortable with collaboration to I you know, I collaborate a lot with my husband, John Leventhal, and he's not a lyric writer and heat. So he writes, the music I write the lyrics when we collaborate and I've learned to. Enjoy not being territorial about my songs territorial. Yeah. Like oh. I have to write everything, you know, it has to be exactly every moment has to be my own expression. Well, when he writes, the music he brings his self to it, and I benefit from his gifts, you know. And I'm happy to do that. What was it allowed you to open yourself up to that? I think maturity and lack of fear, you know, like, I wanna create good work in the world. And I'm I enjoy collaboration to achieve that. Sometimes. Susann wrote as lovers of live music performances. My husband and I treated ourselves to a trip to New York to heroes in at Carnegie Hall. It is an indelibly magnificent memory what about as a live performer. How do you feel that.

"Certainly there's more awareness about sexual harassment, and violence and sexism, and I see a lot of different music industry organizations trying to address that in at least become aware of it and see where it's happening. So that is changing I don't see that a lot of radio poor programmers or label executives or musicians. Would act out as they did twenty years ago and feel that they were entitled to it or could get away with it. I think that is changing are just looked up real quickly this initiative women in the mix that you mentioned from the Recording Academy the organization that puts on the Grammy's. And it says that according to doctor Stacy Smith of the university of southern California two percent of pop music producers and three percent of engineers and mixers in pop music are women so very very low figures. Low Leah way less than five percent. I mean, that's it's it's infuriating. But it's also heartbreaking. I mean, just think of what we're missing the gifts that that women could bring that there. They they can't get in the door to really ITAR breaking the initiative says that it's asking for every time a music producer engineer is hired that at least two women are dented and console. -sidered kind of a Rooney rule for hiring in music. Do you think this is partly a pipeline issue? Like, I don't I wonder who is in courage. Ing women to be music producers or engineers or mixers as opposed to artists. Yeah. I don't think anybody was encouraging that do you know in in an almost forty years of recording. I think that I've come across maybe two women in the studio who were second engineers and zero women who were the chief engineer. So it just was there was no pipeline for women. They had in the same way. They had to carve it out as a doctor. You know, the early part of the century or mid-century that's starting to happen. More with singer songwriter.

"But how much? If at all did this kind of period of public reckoning of public upheaval people rethinking the way that we relate to one another how much if at all did that inspire any of this album. It didn't spare some of it. Some of the songs were written pre me too movement and oddly the song she remembers everything was written pre cavenaugh hearings, which would those were really devastating to me. And I look back on that and thing well that was a little bit prescient in. Oh, the the theme of a woman's memory of trauma, and how it stays intact. So. I would say that even the saw some of the songs that were written before that they were themes that we're still resonating Amine still important to me, I have four daughters and a son. So, you know, some of these things are always in the back of my mind in Europe it and billboard you speak candidly about your own experiences as an artist including dealing with sexual harassment talk a little bit more about that particularly breaking into the music industry in your twenties. What was that like? Well. It was tough. And I as I said in the billboard essay, I I'm resilient have an open heart, but it's matched by thick skin. So in some ways, I just kept my head down and kept showing up for work. And I was so devoted to becoming a good singer songwriter to becoming a great songwriter that that was so important to me that I put up with a lot to get to that. And also, you know, it was a different time back then a lot of things women just assumed while that's what we have to deal with to get forward. You know men. Kind of surreptitiously touching inappropriately saying inappropriate things suggestive, even rage and violence. I don't know why we put up with it. But a lot of things we did. And I just kept like I said I kept blinders on and kept going, and I know some women dropped out. That's that's really the most heartbreaking thing is women who gave up what they were most passionate about in this world because they couldn't take that. And I don't pride myself and saying, well, I could take it. I mean in some ways, I was really lucky I'm resilient. But I'm also lucky I guess some things have changed in the music industry since I started in seventy nine, but something's really haven't. I still hear from young women like I gave up. I couldn't do it was there ever times where you consider giving up. No, I have an engine that doesn't stop. You wrote about how common it was in the culture, not just the music industry, generally. But also of being on the road and being on tour specifically for people to kind of look the other way to enable bad behavior. There's more light being shed on this practice, and I wonder how you see that going. If there is enough accountability. If it's still not quite enough where does that stand for you right now? Well, you know, I talk about this in the essay to is that certainly there's bad behavior by other demographics when they're on the road and away from their home, and you know. But they have since that it's wrong. Some kind of shame about it. They hide it in the music industry that has been glorified and set to a backbeat and used as a marketing tool, you know, this kind of bad behavior and acting out by men not so much by women. And that's one reason woman felt they had to tolerate it is that it was it was used. It was leverage. You know with the bad boys were held up on a pedestal. I do see things changing. There's initiative outright. Now called women in the mix to try to get more women acknowledged and hired as producers and ingineers because the the percentage is abysmal at something like less than five percent of producers and engineers are women. So that trying to create a level playing field for the work is important. And I see that happening..
Brainstorming with Conan O'Brien
"O'brien has been hosting a late night show since the early nineteen ninety s before that he was a comedy writer for the Simpsons and one season on Saturday Night Live in every case. There's a writer's room a bunch of people throwing around ideas shooting down. Most of them building up. The good ones coming up with is a job. Really? It is the job Mike all jobs get a little routine, but lately O'Brien's been stretching himself with a travel series called Conan without borders. There was a period of time when President Obama was interested in you know, friendlier relations with Cuba. And we saw this opportunity to jump in there. And I don't think a late night host had been to Cuba since Jack Parr and our head writer. Mike Sweeney said, you know, what if we went to Cuba and the? Minute. I when I do hear a good idea. I it's almost like intuitive. Yes, not only let's go. But let's go right now. So we went with very little preparation. I guess that's Jesus on the left is that. Yes, you're hey on this this. Jesus christ. And this is chrome Cromartie. I don't think March is a big relief. And I think what you can see there is me really in the act of discovering things discovering this place. I'd never been to before discovering these people as a comedian. I'm probably funniest when I'm reacting in the moment. And that's where I'm most comfortable. I liked to kind of know not know what's going to go on. And so it's this crazy in Yang of my career. Where I I am very cerebral and started my career as a writer, but I really what I probably love most is being out of control and unprepared. And so when you go to a foreign country are often forced into situations where you can't really know what's going to happen. I think as a comedian and his personality, I have a lot of humility. And it's well-earned some comics they come from a place of high status. So they they're telling us. An lecturing us about what the right way to think is. And I've I think I'm come from the opposite side of things which is like to be in situations where I'm not in the power position. And where the other person has the authority. So if I'm in Cuba, and I'm literally in a in a factory where they roll cigars all day. I will sit with one of the women and she will try and teach me and I'll be incompetent. And she gets the laugh, do, you know, she's in the high status position, and it's not in my bones to wanna go to countries and laugh at them. So Conan O'Brien gets fresh ideas by going to Cuba or Israel or Haiti the musician and writer Rosanne cash, sometimes gets her ideas in museums. Problems can be inspiring.

"Label for the past twenty five years during a break from a lengthy US tour cash grew up in nearby Ventura County, and she says it was a household filled with music, my parents listened to a lot of different kinds of music, particularly my dad, he was somewhat of a musicologist in listen to everything even when my brother was born. He started listen to meddle as well. Because when my brother like Madel, you know, he listened to them new. I remember he took me to see strawberry alarm clock. Once we sat in the front your father did. Yeah. I don't even know you do. Okay. And. When Joni Mitchell's blue came out it occurred to me that woman could be a songwriter up to that point. I kind of thought well only men are songwriters. You know? That was the only experience that I had and not only could a woman be asong songwriter, but she could write about her inner life with these vivid scenes and raw feelings turn it into art and put it out in public sphere. And have it be legitimate and people take it seriously that was a revelation that changed my life, and I started writing poetry. And then at eighteen started writing songs, I see. Well, I if I understand right when you were still a teenager, your father brings you and your stepsister out on tour. And you end up being backup singer terrible one to. Yeah. I mean is that something that you wanted? Or is it something that he wanted? How did that come about? It was really just like having fun with my dad, you know, he's like well, come you girls come out on stage at the end and just saying on that? I mean, he was used to having family around. The Carter family was on the road with him. My stepmother, you know, so we just did it for fun. And we Trimble ING with fear. It wasn't professional in. Anyway. But I did start writing songs around that time. And then one thing led to another will your first appearance on a record. I think is on your dad's nineteen seventy four album the junky the chew said minus me this family title. And you sing broken freedom song, which is a Kris Kristofferson song. I don't know if you've gone back and listen to that now anytime in the recent past, but who was that Rosanne cash. My child. God of song. Laden some. And I was terrified of being a singer to tell you the truth terrified, but I look at people young people. Now, you know, eighteen twenty year old singer songwriters are so confident. And just I stand in like, how did they get their that y'all?.

"The kinds of casual you could say sexist remarks that were made to her in the course of her work as a litigator appearing before the supreme court. We ask her how did you deal with this kind of dismissive remark? And her response characteristically was never an anger, and then my favorite comment that she made was I almost felt as if I were a kindergarten teacher explaining to these justices that yes. Discrimination against women exists. It was Justice Ginsburg, then as a lawyer explaining to justices. No, you know, women don't have it all they're not on a pedestal. Title and treated better. The pedestal is often a cage, it seems to me there'd be kind of a fundamental difference between sane we need to make documentary about Ruth Bader Ginsburg to how do we make documentary about Ruth Bader Ginsburg because you have to do this. Well, probably get her cooperation and supreme court justices are famously private well, it was a step by step process. Let's put it that way. We started Julie Cohen. I started about three years ago, we propose to Justice Ginsburg that we would like to do a documentary about her life story. And at the time she said, well, I'm not I'm not ready yet eventually two years ago. She gave us the green light to go ahead and to film her at some of the events that she does around the country where she speaks to legal groups and eventually we filmed with her with her granddaughter. With her family. And then the most fun thing, filming Justice Ruth, Bader Ginsburg in her Jim doing her legendary workout routine. I think it's safe to say that when you started this documentary the world was different than it is today. We did not see the election of Donald Trump defeat of Hillary Clinton. We didn't have all of these reports about sexual harassment and assault and rape across popular culture and into government. How do you think that changes the way that her story is relevant and the way your film will be received? It makes our film more relevant in a way because I think our film, and the story of Justice Ginsburg is a context that people need to understand that it wasn't so long ago that women weren't even allowed in too many workplaces. It was a hard-fought battle. For women to get the right to use their brains and to contribute their talents to our country. And yet we're learning that sexual harassment, and in some cases of violence has kept women from really contributing. So it's another stage in in a long battle for equal rights for women. That's been going on for over a century, Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, played an enormous role in women winning rights for women a couple years ago. I was fortunate enough to go to the supreme court in here or arguments and Ruth, Bader Ginsburg is a tiny woman. She doesn't have a booming voice. But her questions were remarkably astute. She knew this case, backward and forward, what do you think keeps her going? She loves the law. She absolutely loves it. And that's been the case ever since she was a student at Harvard Law School, her children talk about waking up in the middle of the night and going into the kitchen, and there was mom and the dining room table with all the papers spread out, and she's writing into the wee hours that still the case we're told that she really is a night owl. She is very well prepared from what I'm told you come into that courtroom. And Justice Ginsburg has read everything she's got an extraordinary memory. And I think she figures as long as that's the case and she's capable of doing the job. She has no intention of of stepping down.

I told him all of these things, and he wrote me back, and he said, I see that you see as I see it was powerful even to a twelve year old that gave me encouragement for parents got divorced around this time. Her father had become a heavy drinker in the drug addict this made her rethink putting music at the center of her life. Well, that was complicated for me because my dad was a very famous musician. And I grew up thinking that fame was a terrible thing that happened to you like a disease and. I thought why would I go into that? Why would I try to attract that kind of attention, and you never have any privacy and privacy is so important to me because a writer needs privacy and. I don't wanna go on the road. And I don't want to take drugs and get divorced. Well, actually, I did want to take drugs in the beginning. So that was okay. So, but, you know, most of that imprint came from my mom because she was really afraid of fame because of what happened in her life with my dad Rosanne cash, it was a cautionary tale.

"Listener supported w in Y C studios. It was a packed house last Friday night at WNYC's Greenspace when I sat down with singer songwriter. Rosanne cash to talk about her new album, the conversation quickly turned to the sources of her creativity. And the themes of mortality and love and Dafa female. This is her first record in nearly five years and the four time Grammy winner calls it her most personal album to date, the title track was just named one of the top five songs of two thousand eighteen by the New York Times as the Boston Globe said she is both speaking out and looking inward, and you said there's nothing outside of yourself. They're not in this record. No last three albums. I did were teamed albums black Cadillac about loss. And then the list which was a covers record Bill listing of songs by data giving me when I was a kid and then the river and the thread the last one which was really geography both emotional ancestral and musical of the south, and I really didn't wanna do themed record again, I felt this urgency to get back to personal songwriting urgent. See is how I experienced the record. I'm in its lush, it's gorgeous. But there is a sense that there are things that you have to say you say them with a kind of eloquence that allows every listener to sort of project themselves into it for actually blushing. Thank you. Why do you think it took fourteen albums to produce the most personal one so far? I just don't give a damn anymore. Eight. I mean, we were talking about this before about we're two months apart in age and at this point in our lives, you just not don't flinch more to give. That's you don't have anymore. That's exactly right. And and yet we still have a lot to say and less time to say it. So there's a feeling of urgency that everything I want to do in my life lyrically musically. Personally, I have to do it. Now how much of it is about taking stock. A lot. I mean, you, and I we were talking about both gratitude and freedom before we came out here. What do you want the most I wanna feel grateful, and I wanna feel free and taking stock of regrets? So that you can finally let them go taking stock of how much rage you still have left in your body. So put it in a song, and the preciousness of what I have, you know, a long term relationship children work. I love five kids five kits gave birth to four got one for free. That was a lot of box cop. Yeah. Do you? Remember the first song you ever? I do. But you're not going to ask me to tell you anything about it. I like not even like two lines. Well, I will tell you because I had to do this show called first and worst. It was a fundraiser from the music health alliance which is a great cause. Which is the only reason I did this you had to play the first song you ever wrote. And the worst song you ever wrote. They happened to be the same song for me. And it was called love his lost. Again, isn't that deep? So tell me about the only thing worth fighting for. T-bone Burnett, and I have been friends for a long time is a great producer music, supervisor beautiful soul was music supervisor for true detective, so he called me up. And he said, well, you write some lyrics that are kind of about destruction. And maybe there's a bird in it. And some you know, just kinda went on and on I go. Yeah. That's my wheelhouse. I'll do that. And so I wrote these lyrics and sent them to him, and he and lira Lynn wrote the music and it ended up opening the second season of true detective, and even though it was a commissioned work in a way, it was still like really me. It was still where I was in my life. So even that one and a second song that he asked me to write lyrics for called, my least favorite life. They were still me. It was it was all there.

"Rosanne cash. Her extraordinary band. And now starting to welcome back. Our traveling correspondent comedian Tom Papa in a segment we call out in America. Are you there, Tom? I'm here Chris on behalf of live from here. I continue my journey across the country shining. A light on all the good people in America. This week. I returned here to New York City. I decided to soak in the holidays and become a tourist in my own hometown. I one of the whole experience the crowds, the overprice shows and a hotel the size of an iphone. Have you ever sneezed in a New York hotel, and it had strangers on both sides of your room say, God bless you. I have an that was impossible. So I- bundled up and headed to Rockefeller Center for my first tour. Stop the trees a real beauty this year. Standing over sixty feet tall covered in lights and pretty much the same as every year. But special once again. I bought a hot pretzel in the cold night and stood on the edge of the crowd with a guy named jase from Baltimore. He said when I look at that tree. I know him supposed to think about how beautiful it is. But all I can see is a big pain in the keystone. Can you imagine the pile of needles when they take this sucker down? They're going to be vacuuming for days, you just did his ball cap and said this is the first year he skipped having his own tree. The kids are grown, and my wife, and I are traveling. He said, so we didn't do it. I thought it was going to feel weird. But I gotta tell you it actually feels amazing. I'm happy to start going other people's houses. Someone's got to be the weird who seems like he doesn't have a home. So that's me. Now. I had that uncle when I was a kid. He came once a year because we never actually saw where he lived. There is always mystery about him just like Santa only this Santa lived over a bowling alley with a pet turtle and a Hopley the older, we get the harder. It is to keep the holidays going when my grandmother was alive. She got to the point when she didn't even take her tree down anymore. It was a little tree that she left on the table in the living room year round. On New Year's day. She declared Christmas was over and put a white sheet over the top of it. The next year. She drink some eggnog pull the sheet off and say Tada, it's Christmas. It was like her own little magic trick. I wandered over to the railing watch the skaters Rockefeller plaza. There was this one guy who's always there dressed in a crazy sweater and a Santa hat twirling around on the ice. Like, he's at the Olympics families. We're trying to skate around his fancy turns and kicks. And I heard a woman from Long Island say can't you just skate like everybody else. We're not impressed were annoyed. Have you ever had a secret Christmas wish come true as a guy in a Santa hat missed his landing fell on his ass and slid into the wall? I have. Now filled with Christmas spirit, I decided to go warm up and get something to eat. I went to a chain restaurant where the rest of the tourists were shoving food into their faces before they run off to a show. I would mention which restaurant it was. But it takes the name of the day of the week. And it's not Wednesdays. I always thought that if I were to open a place, I'd call it Mondays and serve nothing. But whiskey and paper cups..

"That is eight gods. Farland? That's from Rosanne cash is new album called seat remembers everything you wrote an op Ed in the New York Times a year ago called country musicians stand up to the NRA that was sort of in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas during Jason aldean's said at the route ninety one harvest music festival, and you you open the article by writing about some of the backlash that you faced for being outspoken about gun control. And I'm just wondering how that operates for you now. And I guess how that how that feels affects. Yeah. Yeah. It used to rattle me more. I just I just figured they're always going to be those people who push back who attack who call you stupid. You know, your parents would be ashamed of you all of this stuff. Just bounces off me at this point. I mean, you know, I figure okay. What are they gonna do? Not buy my record. You have to look at myself in the mirror in the morning. And I was taught if you don't speak your conscious if you don't have the courage to state your own convictions in you're not worth very much, and these are my convictions, which brings us you just very recently being honored with the spirit of Americana free speech award, which I can only imagine must be a really, I don't know. Actually, what did you feel like when you first bound out that that you'd be presented with that with that award? I felt a little shy about it. Like, well, you know, I do things and get a lot of attention for it. But there are so many other people who work so much harder and who have devoted their lives to great issue's important social problems and two children into anti gun violence and sex trafficking. And all these people that I know who work in all these fields. So I felt like we'll do this. You know, this they deserve it a lot more than I do. But for whatever reason, I got it. And I was so proud I thought that I would give this speech about. Gun violence and about feminism on about the artists place in society and that. It would get a lukewarm reception. And I was really shocked at how many people how enthusiastic they weren't how on board. They were with these same ideals such a stunning. It was a stunning speech you received the award on the fifteenth anniversary of your dad. Johnny cash is passing and he was the first ever recipient of that award that very same. Yeah. That was a beautiful full circle moment. Right. So he received it in two thousand and two an I was just wondering since because you've spoken about your relationship to your father's legacy. I think it might have been in your book that you that you said that you cherish it. But that it's also a burden with many moving parts. And and of course, it's complicated. But I was wondering if if having this particular honor in common with him has changed the way that has changed your relationship his legacy in. Any way for you? No because I was settled with that before long before this. I, you know, I realized at some point that if I didn't claim my own legacy that somebody else would. That sounds weird. But people want to co-opt my father for their various purposes, and and reasons, and I just knew that pushing back and separating myself in an ungraceful way was just no longer appropriate for me. And I'm settled with that. I mean, I've been doing this forty years telling forty years, I just can't even believe that. So I'm on a continuum. Yes. My father now, my son is a musician. It's not all about me. Well, I guess I was thinking about how proud that..

"That's the discovered country. I didn't hear I didn't hear this the first time. But given what you said about not being interested in male narrative. I can't help it here that you that you namedrop Shakespeare, and and your father. In the first verse of the song. What's what's going on? Well, I love Shakespeare, and I love my. Both of them. But. I think I have think I had to discard. Their voices. You know, like I said, they kicked dust up in my dreams and just clear the house, you know, clear my head and just own my own story. And you know, like, I said, it's my turn won't look back and. I forgot to say that the undiscovered country that that line is from Shakespeare, actually, which is one reason I put him in there. But he it's in hamlet he refers to the undiscovered country, but he means death. But I didn't I don't, you know, I have this list on my iphone of that. I call stealing from Shakespeare, and I just have all these great lines. And I've used a few of them so far. I've never heard of that before I've heard that's great. That's. That's really great. What's another favorite that? You're like that you're dying to sneak in somewhere. Well, you know, what I did on river in the threat. I took another line from the sonnets jewel in the shade. I put I'm the jewel in the shade of his weeping, willow tree. I'm going to keep doing it. You know, if you still from Shakespeare, it's okay because you know, it's out there. Everybody should know. Well, yeah. Rosanne cash is here on the world cafe. And her new record is called seat remembers everything east book a little bit earlier about women who speak their minds, whether or not there consequences for them, and certainly count you as one of those women, and I wanna talk about one of the songs on the record called eight gods of Harlem, which is written and sung with Elvis Costello, and Kris Kristofferson and addresses the consequences of gun violence before we hear the song. Was there a moment in particular that inspired it for you? Yes. Well, you know, I've been an activist against gun violence and for gun control for twenty years, and I've served on boards and done endless amounts of galas in benefits and fundraisers and PSA's in all kinds of things and written about it. Several times. I mean, it's it's like it's an extension of mothering to me. Like, I am never going to shut up about this. No matter what anyone says. So we could go down that order. We could talk about the song. So the song. I, you know, I've lived in New York for thirty years, and I was getting in the subway on day that and this woman was coming out up the steps as I was going down and Hispanic woman, and she looked so sad and she had her head down. She was talking to herself. And I don't speak Spanish. But I thought I heard her say oh to deals would. Means a gods. I think. And I just kept thinking about that. Oh to do. So Joe dias. And she's getting off the train from Harlem. I couldn't get it out of my head. So I started writing this verse eight gods of Harlem new wanted it to be about the effects of gun violence that not just one life was snuffed out. But that many lives were shattered when a child dies from gun violence. And so I wrote the first first, and then Chris and Elvis, and I have been friends for many decades. And I asked them if they wanted to write a song with me, and they said, yes. And I said I have this. I I what if what if the first verse was the mother and the second verse was the father and the last verse was the brother, and so they wrote their verses Chris wrote the second verse Elvis wrote the last one and. John produced it we recorded it. We finished writing and recording it in one day, which was incredible. And it's been sitting in a vault for several years, and we touch base periodically and say, what are we gonna do with eight gods? And then when it came time for this record. I said I just have to put it out given everything that's happened in the last few years. Well, let's hear it is eight Godse parliament by Rosanne cash. They do. Down the street. John. Solely. Shoot..

"Cash is new album. She remembers everything Roseanne welcome back to world. Cafe. Hi, tania. Thank you. Hi. So one thing that really strikes me on that song in particular. But on the whole album in general is sort of the the round -ness of your voice. I take that as a compliment. Thank you. I'm glad well, it's meant that way. It's just I I don't know why this was like the first thing that I wanted to ask you about. But I'm burning to ask you about it because it's it's like recorded in three dimensions. It feels like. So is there something that you've learned over the years as a singer that that allowed it to sound the way that it does on? She remembers everything. Two parts to that question. I think partly my voice is aging it's aging fairly. Well, I like how it's aging, and you know, Rachel said, you're better singer at fifty than you are twenty-five because your life shows up in your voice, and I truly believe that. And the other part is the Sonics have always been really important to me an unfortunate to work with on this record with a couple of producers, Tucker Martine, and John Leventhal who have. Very deep listening skills as far as the specifics of Sonics and recording. So I was the beneficiary of that on your last record on the river and the thread to to make it came out about five years ago. This it you made it by taking this sort of physical road trip to trace the places where you have roots in Tennessee, and Arkansas Louisiana and hearing your latest album hearing, she remembers everything it sorta sounds like a road trip through your own internal highways like going on on an inside road trip. Did it like that description? That's fair to say like if it felt that way if it felt that way to you. Yeah. Well, going back. I don't have any roots in Louisiana that I know about, but okay, Tennessee and Arkansas Yam, but and in Virginia as well, which shows up in the them, but the south is kind of this mystical place this record write it was plumbing. Some of my own depths, and I love men very much. But I've just felt like I just didn't wanna hear. Any male narratives on this record? I just you know, I just wanted so badly to tell a woman story my story, my experiences, my hope my rage. My love my madness. And however particular that is not tried to tilt it. So that it fits some idea of what socially acceptable, or what the male narrative is. It's any sense at all that makes total sense. And I'm already thinking of like so many examples of of songs on the record that sound like what you've just said the convenience about everyone. But me as an example of of of that, and what what a what a woman goes through. But, but I I wanna ask you like there's an urgency to what you've just said that makes me think that you do you feel like you've done that before in in your career? Does it feel like a new thing to say to say this? No, I mean, I have done it before my career. No, it doesn't feel new it feels more urgent as you said. That's a very good word for it. I have more to say I have less time to say at this point in my life. I have four daughters and a son. And when my son went away to college last year, there was one of the questions on his college essay. When he was applying was what what is the one thing in this world, you would change if you could. Any wrote sexism, and I didn't see that coming. It was powerful. And I started thinking a lot about my daughter's when I was writing the songs on this record. And everything that's happened in the last few years and how they feel devalued. They tell me they feel devalued and it's heartbreaking. So I kind of assimilated that into my own story my own history. I mean when I was first starting to make records, I didn't think about. Gender separation. I I never liked the idea of being called a woman songwriter or a woman singer, and I didn't make sense to me I thought well how why would you separate songwriters by gendered?.
