Ryan Adams resurrects record label, paints, requests worship (you jerk)


The rarely-resting Ryan Adams announced today that he was bringing his PAX AM (Pax Americana) label back to life, to release digital singles of his music one at a time. The label last spit out some fine 7″s in 2004, and will return tomorrow with a single of “Lost and Found” (originally on 2006′s Sad Dracula/Fasterpiece sessions) and a new song “Go Ahead And Rain” as the b-side.

Lost And Found (Sad Dracula demo version) – Ryan Adams

You can buy the cleaned-up version and new song for $1.49 on his site.

Ryan issued the following statement regarding the debut of the Pax Am label:

Thanks for making Pax Am the number one Ryan Adams merch site online. We would hunt anyone else down though.

Did you have a rad summer? Good. If you said no, never worry, Pax Am is here. We are gonna fill your fall and winter up with vinyl, digital singles, and t shirts you don’t need.

Stay tuned for videos, free tracks, and our digi-singles. Subscribers get first dibs on rare vinyl.

Remember, purchasing the buck 49 singles is a way to keep FOGGY TV on the air, but it is not necessary to view the weekly content.

This is my label and my internet disco dream.

Make it real you jerks.

Worship me.


He’s also going to have an exhibit later this month at the Morrison Hotel Gallery‘s Bowery space, debuting “a new collection of his original paintings and mixed media collages.” He’s also going to be the gallery’s first artist in residence. The man doesn’t sleep.

  • Hey Heather,

    Thanks for the link. I have to say I’m pretty pumped about all this – especially if the rumors of original lineup Cardinals material being released is true. Lord knows he’s got plenty of songs on-hand to put out there.

    Also, here’s my newest <Viva la Vinyl, Ryan’s California EP.

  • I love RA’s work ethic, but that painting looks eerily similar to Dylan’s Self Portrait. Hmmm…

  • (Hey H, I have a story from back when he was in Nashville – he played often at a venue called 12th & Porter and somebody wrote in one of the ladies bathroom stalls, “Do NOT go home with Ryan Adams.” Add that to the Mandy Moore wedding where not even family members were allowed and my gut says CREEPYEMOTIONALABUSER! The best art always comes from either the best or the most broken people…)

  • clif, thanks so much for the bathroom wall intel. Based on your gut I will never buy any albums by anyone name Ryan. Cheers!

  • Have never really taken that well to Mr Adams, probably due to the fact that he feels that the world should centre around him.

    What a bell end!

"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..."

"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."

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.
