The singer-songwriter is also readying a 'super cool-sounding solo album which will be ready next year'

Ryan Adams is to release a series of previously archived albums this autumn.

In a message to fans on his official Facebook page, Adams announced that both the new double Ryan Adams & The Cardinals LP, ‘III/IV’, and solo effort ‘Blackhole’ were “almost out of the oven”.

“To anyone asking about ‘III/IV’ and ‘Blackhole’, they are almost out of the oven,” he wrote. “You will have a chance to get them this fall. There will not be staggered pressings. Digital and vinyl, not limited copies.”

Meanwhile, the singer-songwriter gave an update on another solo LP he is working on, which he says will be “ready next year”.

“I’ve been working on a second batch of tunes,” he explained. “Both sessions (NYC [New York] and LA [Los Angeles]) sound super cool but I feel like there is even more. Still working. I imagine the new solo LP will be ready next year.”

As previously reported, in early 2009 Adams was “ready for quieter times” after quitting The Cardinals, but has already this year issued “his first fully-realised sci-fi metal concept album” in the form of ‘Orion’, and written 11 new songs inspired by his trip to Ronnie James Dio’s funeral.
