Crow recorded a new version of the song and added his vocals for a haunting duet that was released on Friday along with a music video featuring footage of Cash, alongside historical footage of war, genocide, and political and social movements.

Crow said she got the blessing of the Cash family to use his vocals.

She said to hear him sing the lyrics now feels “extremely powerful and profound”.
