Black metal and hardcore enthusiast and multiple Grammy nominee Ryan Adams has confirmed his first album of all new original material since 2014’s Ryan Adams.
Adams says the new album, titled Prisoner, will be released February 17, and will include first single Do You Still Love Me?
Adams says he was reflecting on the different states of desire and what it means to be a prisoner of your own desire, adding he felt like he had been robbed of the most valuable thing in a person’s life … Time.
The 12 tracks that make up Prisoner came to Adams over a period stretching back as far as the week his 2014 self-titled album entered the US album chart at a career high of number 4. During that run, Adams toured the world, recorded and released a full album cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989, and saw his album garner 2 Grammy nominations for Best Rock Song for Gimme Something Good and Best Rock Album.
