2011 is to be christened as the year of Ryan Adams.
Last year we enjoyed the appetizers in shape of Orion and III/IV, including compilations of tracks recorded years before and never released apparently due to conflicts between the artist and the label Lost Highway.
Once the machine started, acoustic live shows followed, and a 7″ single featuring Empty Room and Nutshell, was sold at the venues.
Now it’s time for Ashes & Fire, his upcoming album, to be released on October, the 11th, by Capitol Records/Pax-Am. I reeeeaaaaaaally can’t wait!
Lucky Now is a teaser of what is to come, and sounds like Heaven.
You can judge for yourselves, hope you like it as much as I do.
