Ryan Adams releases three new acoustic tracks – listen

Singer/songwriter recorded songs in a single afternoon

Ryan Adams has today (April 28) dropped a new seven-inch called ‘I Do Not Feel Like Being Good’.

The release features three acoustic songs in the vein of his ‘Love Is Hell’-era output which, as recalled by Adams via his record label Pax-AM’s website, were recorded with two mics in just one afternoon.

“I had been dragging a few of these behind me in that bag of songs I keep tied around my ribs since London- 09 ish,” he wrote in a flowery statement. “I was shipwrecked in a hotel there with a bad case of the spins, just me and my Buck Owens acoustic guitar ( his name is Buck, the guitars is ) and we just sort of were riding out the turbulence.”


‘I Do Not Feel Like Being Good’ is available to buy online and is currently streaming via Spotify.

Earlier this year, Adams performed an acoustic version of ‘Gimme Something Good’ on US chat programme The Late Late Show. The singer/songwriter was accompanied by Detroit bass player Don Was, once of the band Was (Not Was). Scroll down to watch.
