OUT OCTOBER 11 ON PAX-AM/CAPITOL
CONAN APPEARANCE CONFIRMED FOR OCTOBER 10
“Sparse, stately roots-rock and lyrics chiseled down to eternals… Mr. Adams sounds fragile but determined, in a Glyn Johns production that gives each discrete instrument a natural glow”–THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Sad, simple, slight–and perfect”–ROLLING STONE
“11 meticulously crafted songs”–TIME
With his forthcoming Ashes & Fire (out October 11 on PAX-AM/Capitol) already generating arguably the best critical notices of his career to date, Ryan Adams has confirmed another leg of North American dates.
The new dates run from December 2 at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music through December 13 at the State Theater in Minneapolis and include a December 6 stop of New York’s venerable Carnegie Hall.
Preceded by stunning single “Lucky Now,” an NPR First Listen streaming preview live now at http://www.npr.org/2011/09/25/140640429/first-listen-ryan-adams-ashes-and-fire?sc=emaf and an October 10 CONAN appearance, Ashes & Fire is eleven succinct and beautiful samples of Adams at his songwriting, performing and singing best. The record was produced by Glyn Johns, renowned for his work with the likes of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Clash and The Rolling Stones, and whose son Ethan produced previous Adams landmarks including Heartbreaker and Gold. The record also features guest turns from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench and Norah Jones, who contributes piano and backing vocals to several tracks.
