It's been almost three years since Ryan Adams released his last album of original material, but a new record is on the near horizon.
Adams will release 'Prisoner', the follow-up to 2014's 'Ryan Adams' and 2015's Taylor Swift covers album '1989', on February 17th.
It'll be preceded by a new single 'Do You Still Love Me', which is out today.
The album deals with Adams' split from actress Mandy Moore, as he told NME: “For me, the big shadow illuminating things for fans will be that this record is directly related to my divorce…I think that’s what fans will read into it and to the things that happened and what was going on inside me. How I endured it and where I was in my emotions at that time – and they wouldn’t be wrong. I didn’t want to make a mistake and avoid it…I believe in art, and it sounds so stupid – but I think it’s more stupid to pretend that things aren’t happening to you and write some bland fucking useless bullshit. I don’t wanna be that. I don’t wanna write music for people on fucking boats y’know, that’s not who I am."
