Desperado -- Johnny Cash?

I'm doing a little work in th wee hours today and I'm plugged into an internet radio station to provide the backdrop. As many of you know, I'm a big fan of Johnny Cash. Well, I just heard something I have never heard before. Johnny Cash singing "Desperado" (yeah, the Eagles song).

Bizzarre.

[Edit: Ah. I just figured out why I've never heard JC sing this before -- it's apparently off of his new album (complete with backing vocals from Don Henley on the Desperado track), which I don't yet have. On his new album, he also covers Nine Inch Nails, Simon & Garfunkel, Depeche Mode, and the Beatles.

Bizarre.]
