Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams is at long last set to actually put out an album in coming months. The ever meticulous crooner has been holed up in a North Carolina studio for nearly eleven straight months writing and rewriting what is said to be a masterpiece of modern country rock.
Never one to put every stray thought and feeling into musical form, the shy genius is reported to have poured his heart into painstakingly crafting some of the most memorable and emotionally engaging material of his career. Critics who have heard the record thus far have described it as “a completely original work, in no way indebted to The Replacements, Gram Parsons or the Grateful Dead” and “a new sound that is the opposite of dashed-off and flippantly presented” and “not at all targeted at the One Tree Hill demographic.”
Mr. Adams has managed to maintain his fanbase despite the fact that his output through the years has been as sparse as his public appearances with indie actresses and pop singers and his changing of hairstyles. Some have even dubbed the upcoming CD “Ryanese Democracy” after the long awaited Guns n’ Roses record that finally saw the light of day this past year.
Oddly, Adams’ website reports that after the album’s release, he will embark upon a 38-city acoustic tour on which he will play only Bryan Adams cover songs.
