I stumbled across a site that is having a great debate about a post I wrote claiming that Ryan Adams is releasing a new album on June 4, in the UK at least.
When discussing the post (this one)
someone on the message board said:
"and that blogger is a kook for saying things have disappointed since gold.
- oh... maybe he's a virgin... that could be it."
Well anyway, it's official and here's the tracklisting.
Ryan's ninth full-length proper, Easy Tiger, enters the physical universe June 5 via Lost Highway.
Possibly named for a line Mr. Adams often gets in bed, Easy Tiger's not-yet-sequenced baker's dozen is reprinted below for your speculative pleasure. Will "Goodnight Rose" be a rollicking alt-country romper? Will "Oh My God, Whatever, Etc." involve cheap beat boxes and witch impersonations? Lord we hope so.
Easy Tiger (track order not finalized):
The Sun Also Sets
Tears of Gold
I Taught Myself How to Grow Old
Oh My God, Whatever, Etc.
