RYAN ADAMS – “WASTELAND”
CLICK HERE TO LISTEN HERE ON SOUNCLOUD
FINALLY. Ryan Adams is set to release a double album of his musical archives. The most bad-ass musician on earth will be releasing the now titled III/IV hopefully before the year’s end (no release date yet), on his own label Pax-AM. This double album was recorded with the Cardinals in 2007 when the band was recording Easy Tiger(Lost Highway).
The set will be released on vinyl, cd and download, and if you head to the Pax-Am site, you can read all about the project. Amazon is already letting you pre-order as the album drops December 14th. Pax-Am is starting their pre-order later this month, with one on i-tunes on November 23rd.
The site describes the record like:
“a rock record that felt more like a hybrid of all the records that the band had mutually consumed as kids… from influences as wide as KISS and The Cars.” It’s also a “concept rock opera about the 80s, ninjas, cigarettes, sex, and pizza,”
Ah Ryan, it is good to have you back in any form.

Ryan Adams. Oh where do we begin. Since ‘retiring’ early last year, Adams has not been out of the spotlight one bit. With book tours and pressing an album with his ‘metal’ project, Orion, if anything, he’s more in the spotlight than ever.
News came this morning that Mr. Adams will be releasing two unheard albums from the vault. Though when they will be put out is unsure yet, in great Ryan fashion, we’ll sure not only will it be soon, but it will be without much notice. The first will be a double LP that he recorded with The Cardinals called III/IV and the second is called Blackhole which was written during the Love is Hell era which he said took him four years to make. I have a feeling this is only the beginning of the Adams’ back issues.
