Ryan Adams recently contributed “Shine Through The Dark” to the charity compilation Live From Nowhere Near You, Vol. 2, and he dubbed it his first song “post-retirement.” (Our review here.)
It seems Adams is almost done with his first album “post-retirement,” the first new Ryan Adams album since 2008’s Cardinology. (He has of course released an album under the moniker Orion, as well as old Carinals material on III/IV in the meantime.) He revealed in this month’s issue of Q Magazine that the new album will be called Ashes & Fire, and it is set to feature “12 elegant country-rock songs, featuring Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers’ organist Benmont Tench and guest co-vocalist Norah Jones.” Adamas has been working with producer Glyn Johns on the project. You can read the full Q article here.
This info comes courtesy of Consequence of Sound who have also tracked down videos of a couple of live performances of new songs “Dirty Rain” and “Invisible Riverside,” which you can watch below. (Unless you’d rather watch Ryan Adams’ Vampire Weekend covers.)
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
