Ryan Adams has announced that he is set to release a series of previously unreleased albums.
In a message to fans on his official Facebook page, Adams firstly revealed how he had got a new Ryan Adams & The Cardinals LP back “fresh from the mastering plant”.
Called ‘III/IV’, the double studio effort will be the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Cardinology’, and has been “in the vault since 2006”.
Meanwhile, in a second post, the singer-songwriter also added that he would be issuing a new solo album, which was recorded “over Christmas in 2005”.
“Oh yeah, p.s. the ‘Blackhole’ LP is also back from the mastering plant,” he explained. “I f’n love this thing. It took 4 years to make it and to me it is basically ‘Love Is Hell Part 3’… lots of shimmery guitar love on this. Exciting times!!!”
Despite the news, release dates for the albums are yet to be confirmed.
As previously reported, in early 2009 Adams was “ready for quieter times” after quitting The Cardinals, but has recently released “his first fully-realised sci-fi metal concept album” in the form of ‘Orion’, and has also written 11 new songs inspired by his trip to Ronnie James Dio’s funeral.
