Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams has announced he’s releasing a new album this fall. On November 4, according to a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Adams will release his first album of original material since his 2014 self-titled effort. He’s supposedly written more than 80 songs since then, and his inspirations are heavily based in the hits of the ’80s, including Bruce Hornsby and AC/DC.

“When I run, I listen to [an iPod] Nano that I have,” Adams says in the EW article. “I put all the AC/DC records on from back to front, or I’ll listen to the best of stuff from the ’80s: Springsteen, or [Bruce] Hornsby, and I’ll listen to what is going on there. I was listening to AC/DC’s Fly on the Wall and that’s when I realized what I had to do for the record.”

The new album doesn’t have a title yet but will most likely be released via PaxAm. Adams’ most recent album was his Taylor Swift covers album, 1989.
