Easy, tiger

Lookee – album art from Ryan Adams‘ forthcoming album Easy Tiger, due June 5 on Lost Highway:

Ryan’s just announced a show on May 16th at the Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston, New York. Presale for the in-crowd starts tomorrow and you can get more info here. He’s also doing a show 5/15 at the WXPN Mountain Stage Live fest in Glenside, PA and Stonehenge (yes, that one) on the day the album drops, June 5. Not even sure what to categorize that move as, but what a freaking venue.

As for the album art, I was kind of hoping for something more along these lines, but I suppose that handsome and effortlessly charming photo above will have to do. I wonder if that fatty computer watch is what he uses to record all that electronic website music and update his site, with the help of the witches. That timepiece is bitchin’, circa 1985.

  • That would indeed be a great cover.

    I’m psyched for the new Ryan Adams… Cold Roses is one of my favorite records from the past couple years.

    How great is it that he releases so many albums? Such a rarity these days.

  • my only current disappointment is that the cd isn’t gonna be with the Cardinals. but i’m sure it will be good.

  • Agreed, ledbelly. Heather: latest mailout from Lost Highway suggests the release is being delayed until the 26th June. Foxy cover art, though…

  • I can’t f’n wait for this album to come out. I think he played a couple of these tunes at the NY Town Hall show I went to, and they sounded very promising. I wonder how long it’s gonna take for the album to leak?

  • If we are lucky, he’ll have a Cardinals Album out by August. After a year with out an Album, I’m sure he has more than a backlog…

    These watches may have created his website.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
