The Black Keys  may have just released  Turn Blue , but frontman  Dan Auerbach  will soon be appearing on another new release: an old-school country album by the late  Cowboy Jack Clement . The project is called  For Once and for All  and it was finished just before the Country Music Hall of Fame member died last August at age 82.

Cowboy Jack was a longtime engineer at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, where he made many lifelong friendships and musical alliances. In an interview in  USA Today , Auerbach says "Cowboy was one of the first people I met when I moved to Nashville," and says the elderly musician held frequent "picking sessions" at his house, with any guitarists who happened to be local and free that night.

Auerbach plays acoustic guitar on "I've Got a Thing About Trains," a cover of the  Johnny Cash  song, which appears on  For Once and for All .

Other contributors on the album include heavy-hitters like  Leon Russell, Dierks Bentley, John Prine, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill  and others.

For Once and for All  arrives in digital and retail locations on July 15. You can catch Auerbach's fingerwork now in a  preview  of "I've Got a Thing About Trains" on the  USA Today  website .
