Ryan Adams set to release 'Easy Tiger' on June 25th
*Village Indian during last years' Bowery Ballroom set.
Oh-and if anyone is excited about this- it would be our lovely Jaime W! Apparently the only thing distracting him from the brillant performances by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings was a 'mis-educated' Bright Eyes fan spouting garbage about Mr. Ryan Adams seated in front of him during Friday's show- the nerve! Hopefully this news will cheer him up a bit. It seems Ryan has officially announced the release date for 'Easy Tiger' and has further plans to release a box set after he releases his new album.
"According to a spokesperson for his US label Lost Highway, the collective may include live tracks as well as unreleased albums '48 Hours', 'The Suicide Handbook', 'Bedhead' and songs from the 'Easy Tiger' sessions, reports Billboard. A spokesperson for his US label Lost Highway said that the box set would not include tracks he released via Ryan-Adams.com under the monikers DJ Reggie, WereWolph, The Shit and others. He said: "That wasn't meant to be anything more than just a laugh. It was a thing to do after shows. It was like having garage band wars. It was fund- a chance experiment with rap stuff."
Of 'Easy Tiger' Adams said: "It's a bunch of individual poems, really, and I have no reservations about trying to link anyting together. I still feel even unfamiliar with this record. Even though I wrote them, I still feel like I don't know enough about them yet."Adams added that he was annoyed at critics who had a go at his work ethic (he released three albums between 2005 and 2006), explaining: "I ignore the people that say I'm at fault for being a hard worker. It's completely unreasonable."
