Ryan Adams has an unlikely fan in horror author Stephen King.
In a statement written by King about Adams‘ new album ’Easy Tiger’, the horror author praised the singer-songwriter.
He wrote: “I won’t say Adams is the best North American singer songwriter since Neil Young…but I won’t say he isn’t either. What I know is there has never been a Ryan Adams record quite as strong and together as ’Easy Tiger’.”
King went on to say: “(Adams) mentioned how prolific he was, aware that I might be touching a sore point. After all, there are plenty of critics who seem to think that’s a bad thing. Adams, however, just laughs.”
“Yeah, yeah, in America people give you shit for working hard,” he added. “But…it’s process, that’s all. I process things. I went into the dream business. If people need ’em, I’ve got extra.”
Adams‘ publicist told Pitchfork that the two are fans of each other’s work.
