Ryan Adams has revealed that he will be releasing a new boxset named 'Live After Deaf' in the near future.

Adams, who released his 13th studio album 'Ashes & Fire' last year, posted an image on his official Facebook page yesterday (June 14) of what appears to be a vinyl box set, writing: "Live After Deaf. Friday. This will not be repressed."

He has not revealed any further details, but it is widely expected that the album will be a boxset of live recordings. Adams previously used to allow his audiences to openly record bootlegs of his live shows, but ended this practice for his 'Ashes & Fire' tour with the promise that live material would be gathered in an official release.

The title 'Live After Deaf' is a reference to the singer's struggle with hearing condition Meniere's Disease, which led him to a take a lengthy break from music in 2001. Meniere's Disease is a disorder of the inner ear that can affect hearing and balance to a varying degree. It is characterised by episodes of vertigo, low pitched tinnitus, and hearing loss.

'Ashes & Fire' was released on the singer's own label PAX-AM in October and it is expected that 'Live After Deaf' will be released in a similar manner.
