Ryan Adams appears on ‘Little Black Dress’ on the album, due for release in the UK on April 8 through Fargo Records.

Stateside is fronted by John Paul Keith, a member of Ryan Adams‘ Nashville-based side project The Pink Hearts. According to Ryan Adams, The Pink Hearts have an entire album in the bag ready for release at any time. The sound is described as ‘Nashville punk rock’.

‘Twice As Gone’ also sees cameos by Brad Pemberton and Billy Mercer, also members of The Pink Hearts and Ryan Adams touring band of last year.

Veteran Bucky Baxter, guitarist for Bob Dylan throughout the 90s and an associate of Steve Earle, also appears on the Stateside album.

Meanwhile, Ryan Adams himself will be playing at Manchester Apollo on April 7 and London Brixton Academy on April 9. Both shows are NME 5.0 gigs, part of a year-long series to mark NME’s 50th anniversary.
