After settlinga dispute with his label, we're looking at a new album, two EPs and a box-set this year alone...
Ryan Adams will release his aborted album ‘LOVE IS HELL’ as two EPs, with the first instalment emerging in the US on November 4 – the same day as his new album ‘ROCK ‘N’ ROLL’.
‘Love Is Hell Vol. 1’ will be followed by the second volume on December 9 and each EP will contain between six and eight songs, according to Rolling Stone. UK release dates have yet to be confirmed.
The release of the two EPs will finally settle a long-running dispute between Ryan Adams and his record company Lost Highway.
As previously reported on NME.COM in May, Ryan Adams wrote on his website: “Love Is Hell’ is finished. We don’t know what to do with it… or should I say ‘they’ don’t know what to do with it. I’ve heard adjectives like ‘incredibly too depressing’ and – this one’s funny – ‘dark.’ Also not your best stuff.”
As well as Ryan Adams‘s ’80’s rock album’ – ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll’ – the singer is to put out a box-set, featuring two previously unreleased albums with his side project The Pinkhearts – ’48 Hours’ and ‘The Suicide Handbook’ – as well as sessions Ryan Adams recorded with producers Scott Litt and Michael Blair. The set is due to be released before the end of the year.
