The alt-country wonder boy readies 'Rock N' Roll' for November release...

Ryan Adams has completed work on his new album, which is tentatively titled ‘ROCK N’ ROLL’.

Ryan Adams has been working on his new album, the full follow-up to 2001’s ‘Gold’, for most of the year.

Now, a posting on his official website, [url=], reveals that the record is complete, and has been given a November release date.

An earlier album, ‘Love Is Hell’, had been expected in early spring 2003. It has now been spiked, with no explanation given. Rumours abound that his label, Lost Highway, rejected it because it was too dark.
