RYAN ADAMS HAS TWO VALENTINES DAY GIFTS FOR YOU

RYAN ADAMS HAS TWO VALENTINES DAY GIFTS FOR YOU

“Baby I Love You” V-Day Single Out Digitally Today via Blue Note/Pax-Am

June 14 at Red Rocks On Sale Now

Ryan Adams has a double shot of V-Day love for the world this year:

First, a special Valentines Day single—“Baby I Love You”—a brand new and unavailable elsewhere track brought to you on the wings of Cupid (and by Blue Note/Pax-Am). “Baby I Love You” is exactly what it sounds like: A song to one’s baby, whom they love—a unique twist on Ryan Adams’ classic recipe, with key ingredient “sad” replaced by “happy.” Listen here and check out the love-ly visual interpretation of the song by director Brook Linder here.

And second, hearts aren’t the only red things in the bouquet Ryan’s getting you this year: Tickets are on sale now for a just-announced June 14 headline show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. Yes, Ryan’s first confirmed show of 2018 will be his return to the site of the 2017 show that generated local raves including “Ryan Adams Fans Fulfill Their Wildest Dreams at Red Rocks” (WESTWORD) and “Watching him onstage amidst the thousands of people who came out to see him was a surprisingly intimate affair… Adams sincerely put the audience first playing a slew of fan favorites all night, to everyone’s delight” (303 MAGAZINE).

Ryan Adams’ Prisoner was released February 17, debuting #3 on the U.S. album chart, #1 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart, and generating wave after wave of the most effusive critical praise of Adams’ career. NEW YORK MAGAZINE (“Genius…the best thing he’s put out in a decade”), ROLLING STONE (“Personal and urgent…close to the magnum opus of his dreams”), ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY (“the poet laureate of unadulterated heartbreak, a master chronicler of the endless shapes and colors of romantic pain”) and the ASSOCIATED PRESS hailed Prisoner as the multiple Grammy nominee’s best in 10 years or more, while PEOPLE noted “even when his lyrics cling to loss, Adams lets in light with melody,” and The AV CLUB observed “He sounds like he’s savoring how full of life his music is, no matter what it took to make it so. He hasn’t just turned misery into art; he’s turned it into joy.”

Ryan Adams is currently in the midst of the Prisoner world tour, which swings through New York next week, beginning with a May 1 stop at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert followed by back to back sold out shows at the Beacon Theater May 2 and 3. The tour circles the globe through late September and sees Ryan headlining the likes of the Greek Theaters in Los Angeles and Berkeley, Red Rocks, an already sold out September date at the Royal Albert Hall and more. Ryan has also been making the festival rounds including Lollapalooza and Shaky Knees, while adding multiple headline shows due to popular demand from St. Paul MN to Dublin.

RYAN ADAMS WANTS  TO HOLD YOU…
… PRISONER
ALBUM RELEASE WEEK ASSAULT ON YOUR HEART:
PRISONER UP ON NPR FIRST LISTEN NOW
ALL SONGS CONSIDERED VALENTINES DAY GUEST DJ SET
Weeklong St. Valentines Massacre To Include Apollo Theater Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Intimate In-Store Appearance

 

Just as the songs on his anxiously awaited new album Prisoner (out this Friday, February 17 on PAX AM/Blue Note) gave him no choice but to be their vessel, Ryan Adams will not be deterred from making you his Valentine this week.

Having just appeared on Monday’s episode of WTF with Marc Maron, Ryan’s full frontal assault on your heart will escalate with a Valentines Day twofer: Ryan will be your very own Valentines Day guest DJ on NPR’s ALL SONGS CONSIDERED, the same day that NPR FIRST LISTEN will preview in full the album that NEW YORK Magazine hailed as “the best thing he’s put out in a decade,”  ROLLING STONE called “close to the magnum opus of his dreams” and STEREOGUM just cautioned “you might find yourself unable to stop listening to.”

Thursday, February 16 Ryan will return to the Apollo Theater. His first appearance at the iconic Harlem venue in nearly 10 years, Ryan and his Band’s show sold out instantly, but don’t be heartbroken: Ryan will be there on your TV screen the very next night, asking if you still love him February 17 on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

And if you’re not busy Saturday, February 18 and somehow managed to score a ticket to possibly the most intimate engagement he has played in the NYC area since people have cared, Ryan Adams will be playing a sold out electric set and recently announced 6pm acoustic set at Rough Trade Records in Brooklyn (Acoustic show sales begin February 17 with Prisoner purchases at the store; 1 wristband per album, 2 wristbands maximum–names will be on wristbands).

Ryan will then re-direct his affections to the west coast for two more in-store appearances–February 20 at Fingerprints in Long Beach, CA  (sold out) and February 22 at Amoeba Records in Los Angeles (admission requires album purchase in store at Hollywood Amoeba Music starting February 17-before appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden on February 23.

Lil BUB EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH RYAN HERE

unnamed

In an exclusive interview with the world’s foremost feline talk show host Lil BUB, pinball, comic book, black metal and hardcore enthusiast and multiple-Grammy-nominee-and-zero-winner Ryan Adams confirmed details of his first album of all new original material since 2014’s Ryan Adams.

During the intimate and revealing interview – which can be seen here – Adams divulged that the album, titled Prisoner, will be released February 17 on Pax-Am/Blue Note, and previewed and discussed snippets (or “sniplets”) of new tracks including first single “Do You Still Love Me?” which is available today for purchase and as an instant grat with all pre-orders.

“I was reflecting on the different states of desire and what it means to be a prisoner of your own desire,” Adams told BUB of the new record’s title, later adding, “I felt like I had been robbed of… the most valuable thing in a person’s life… Time.”

The twelve tracks that make up Prisoner came to Adams over a prolific period stretching back as far as the week his 2014 self-titled album entered the U.S. album chart at a career high of #4. During that run, Adams toured the world, recorded and released both his Live at Carnegie Hall collection and full-album cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989, and saw the aforementioned Ryan Adams garner two Grammy nominations – Best Rock Song for “Gimme Something Good” and Best Rock Album – while “Gimme Something Good” became the first vinyl single to go #1 at the Amazon music store.

And somehow during this two-year-plus whirlwind, Adams contends Prisoner virtually wrote itself. As he told Lil BUB, “Whatever was going on in me was strong enough that I only had to sit down and this stuff just made itself known.”

Ryan Adams’ Prisoner track listing is below. The album will be available February 17, 2017 in formats including: standard digital, HD digital, 180G vinyl, CD, limited edition red vinyl at indie record stores, and a limited edition exclusive cover at Barnes and Noble. “Do You Still Love Me?” can be streamed here.

“A startling 15-song masterpiece, ‘Heartbreaker’ is…an album of astonishing musical proficiency, complete honesty and severe beauty.” —PITCHFORK

“…an exquisite collection of charred and tattered songs about a doomed relationship and its bitter aftermath…”—UNCUT

Heartbreaker, the debut solo album by Ryan Adams, hailed as a modern classic on its release in September 2000, will be re-released by Paxam Records and distributed by Caroline Records and Universal Music on  May 6th on 180gm 4LP/DVD and 2CD/DVD Deluxe Editions along with digital release of the 35 audio tracks.   Remastered from the original tapes, the album will come in a deluxe box set that features the 15 song album plus demos and unreleased outtakes from this landmark record by one of rock music’s most prolific and charismatic stars.  The package will also include a DVD featuring never before released footage of a complete solo acoustic show at the Mercury Lounge in New York City in October 2000 (including  Adams’ first ever live performance of his now-legendary cover of Oasis’s “Wonderwall”),  and a glossy booklet of rare and unseen photos with liner notes written by producer, friend and collaborator Ethan Johns.

Heartbreaker was recorded over fourteen days at Woodland Studios in Nashville.  The band featured Ryan Adams on guitars, vocals, piano and harmonica, Ethan Johns on bass and drums, bluegrass stalwarts Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch on guitars and backing vocals, and Pat Sansone on keyboards.  The album also included guest vocals by Emmylou Harris, Kim Richey and Alison Pierce.

Ryan Adams was born in 1974 in Jacksonville, North Carolina.  At an early age he started writing short stories and poems before receiving his first guitar at the age of 14.  Shortly afterwards he joined a local band named Blank Label and released a record while Adams was  just 16.  Adams went on to perform with local bands Ass and The Lazy Stars before joining punk band The Patty Duke Syndrome, who released one single during a brief career.  In 1994 Adams formed Whiskeytown who went on to release three seminal albums ‘Faithless Street’, ‘Strangers Almanac’ and ‘Pneumonia’ that went some way to defining the burgeoning alt-country scene in the US and announced Adams as a truly gifted singer-songwriter.  Despite critical raves and a growing fanbase, the band split up in 2000.  Adams went solo and has since released 15 studio albums: ‘Heartbreaker’ (2000), ‘Gold’ (’01), ‘Demolition’ (‘02), ‘Rock n Roll’ (’03), ‘Love Is Hell’ (’04), ‘Cold Roses’ (’05), ‘Jacksonville City Nights’ (’05), ‘29’ (’05), ‘Easy Tiger’ (’07), ‘Cardinology’ (’08), ‘Orion’ (’10), ‘III/IV’ (’10), ‘Ashes & Fire’ (’11), ‘Ryan Adams’ (’14) and ‘1989’ (’15).
