Ryan Adams and the Cardinals Vinyl
That is the cover of the vinyl edition of Ryan Adams and the Cardinals' Cardinology, out now in the States from Lost Highway and due November 10 in the UK from Mercury Records Ltd. The first pressing of the wax finds the disc pressed into red translucent vinyl and accompanied by a download card (U.S. only), a bonus 7", 17 postcards from the current tour, and a lyric book and limited-edition t-shirt both designed by graphic novelist Leah Hayes (who also designed the alternate cover you see above.)
Also, reorders for Ryan's book, Infinity Blues, start shipping next month from Akashic Press, with the official publication date set at April 1 of next year. On the Akashic site, the collection of poetry and fiction is described as "the jewel of my life's work" by Adams.
