:: Really like this new Adams LP a lot!
Los Angeles based singer/songwriter and producer Ryan Adams has released his fourteenth studio album (at the age of 39) and maybe this self-titled new LP has become his very best. In July, it was revealed that Adams had scrapped the already completed, Glyn Johns-produced successor to 2011’s Ashes & Fires after feeling the need to start afresh musically. In a recent interview with Stereogum, he explained:
“We were recording it in the same a way as Ashes & Fire. It just didn’t feel to me the way Ashes & Fire did, and it didn’t feel like I was exploring or getting anywhere. By the time it was done, I had this impression like, this is a record that sounds like it was produced by somebody. Like another record. Someone else’s vision of my songs.”
Ryan Adams was released in the UK/Europe on September 08, 2014 via Adams own PaxAmericana Recordings / Columbia Records / Blue Note Records. North America saw release on September 09. The album is available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy from Ryan Adams store.
Ryan Adams is now streaming on a number of services, including Spotify and iTunes Radio. Check it out here. The set of eleven songs was recorded and produced by Adams and his recording partner Mike Viola at Adams’ PAX AM home analogue studio in California, together with bass guitarist Tal Wilkenfeld who had previously performed in Jeff Beck’s band.
