Country rocker Shooter Jennings
has recorded an album with his late father, Waylon
. "Waylon Forever" features the dead legend's classic and final recordings - backed by his son's band, the 357's.
Jennings Sr., who died in 2002, recorded the songs when his son Shooter was just 16. Many of the tracks have never been released.
Shooter tells Billboard.com
, "It wasn't like it's some mysterious story about some unfinished album that was in some closet for 10 years. We finished the album the best that we could when I was 16. We had all the intentions in the world to get it out there and get a record deal with it.
"When nothing happened the recordings kind of just disappeared, and about two years ago Dave my producer and (girlfriend) Drea (De Matteo)
both were like, 'You've got to do something with that.' Thank you to modern technology. It doesn't sound like we dug up some vocals that had always been there and we had to do magic to make it sound new. It's all about bringing my musical side of everything I do around him and creating this completely different but acceptable space that he fits in."
The album will be released in October.
