Ryan Adams Plays New Songs In London, Album Coming

The Associated Press, Wednesday, March 20, 2013, 9:00pm (PDT)

Billboard -- Ryan Adams is back in the saddle and testing new material with a full band. And there's an album on the way. apcm:Sources tell that Adams has teamed-up once again with top producer Glyn Johns (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Clash), who worked on his most recent album, 2011's “Ashes & Fire.” The new set is said to have "more orchestral flourishes" than the last one. British audiences got first-listen to a brace of new songs. Adams performed the new tracks “Where I Meet You In My Mind” and “In The Shadows” on March 19, for the opening night of the Teenage Cancer Trust charity concerts at London's Royal Albert Hall. According to a review of the show published in British tabloid The Mirror, the first of those songs “wouldn't have been out of place” on “Ashes & Fire,” but “In The Shadows” was “very different, more uptempo and electric and with a horror movie storyline.” For the first time since 2009, Adams took to the stage with a full backing band. There's talk that the five who joined him on stage -- Benmont Tench on keyboards, Don Was on bass, Cindy Cashdollar on steel guitar, Jeremy Stacey on drums and Glyn's son Ethan Johns on guitar -- are the same musos who play on the upcoming album.
