Ryan Adams recently released new boxset ‘PRISONER: END OF THE WORLD’ and it features 17 previously unreleased B-sides.
Fans needn’t buy the boxset to hear these B-sides, as they appear to have surfaced online.
Track titles include ‘What If We’re Wrong’, ‘Are You Home?’, ‘It Will Never Be The Same’ and ‘Hanging on to Hope’ hinting that many of the songs were inspired by Adams’ split with his ex-wife Mandy Moore.
The boxset also features 12 7-inch records and 2D action figures of Adams and his bandmates. You can steam the B-sides below.
Meanwhile, Adams spoke about how writing the record helped him recover through the trauma of death and divorce.
“For me, the big shadow illuminating things for fans will be that this record is directly related to my divorce [from Mandy Moore], and to what was going on inside me – how I endured it and where I was in my emotions at that time – and they wouldn’t be wrong,” Adams told NME about the new album.
“I didn’t want to make a mistake and avoid it…I believe in art, and it sounds so stupid – but I think it’s more stupid to pretend that things aren’t happening to you and write some bland fucking useless bullshit.”
