OUT JUNE 26 ON LOST HIGHWAYAfter Arcade Fire, I couldn't think of any big releases that I would really look forward to. I'm not saying other stuff that has come out or will come out isn't good, great even, but the music of Ryan has always been especially sentimental to me, so while my friend Kristian tells me that the forthcoming Spoon album is "AMAZING", I'll have my sights set on Ryan Adams and Rocky Votolato.
Ryan Adams' Easy Tiger has been scheduled for a June 26 release on Lost Highway. The new album features The Cardinals (but is billed solely as a Ryan Adams album) and also a guest appearance from Sheryl Crow, who contributes back-up vocals on the track “Two”.
The sequence of Easy Tiger is:
Oh My God, Whatever, Etc.
Tears Of Gold
The Sun Also Sets
Pearls On A String
I Taught Myself How To Grow Old
Easy Tiger is be Ryan Adams' ninth full length collection of new studio recordings, following Heartbreaker (2000), Gold (2001), Demolition (2002), Rock N Roll (2003), Love Is Hell (2004), Cold Roses (2005), Jacksonville City Nights (2005) and 29 (2005).
Stream a couple tracks:
Ryan will tour the US in support of the album in June and July. I hope he comes through San Diego and I hope (fingers crossed) it's at the Belly Up, not the House of Blues. Or Spreckels? Just no HOB. please.
