Cardinology: Ryan Adams' Latest Secret Revealed

As you've no doubt obviously heard, the secret of the "Cardinology" mailbox has been revealed: Ryan Adams And The Cardinals will be releasing Cardinology on October 28th. The record appears to leave behind the solo "Ryan Adams" label of Easy Tiger, with full band collaboration and the Cardinals moniker running strong.

On top of the new album release, Adams also has a book of "non-musical writing" on the way entitled Infinity Blues. The volume will be released on March 16th, 2009, but pre-orders start October 6th. By jumping in on the preorder, you not only get a signed hardcover copy of the tome, but a bonus "poetry chapbook" titled Sad American Mythology. Get on the preorder here.

The tracklist for Cardinology features a bunch of the tracks that the band has been playing live, and we're thinking it may have a bit more rock flavor than Easy Tiger, which sounds like a plan to us. Here's the tracklist:

Born Into A Light
Go Easy
Fix It
Let Us Down Easy
Crossed Out Name
Natural Ghost
Sink Ships
Like Yesterday

"Fix It" will be the first single, as the band continues their North American tour over the next month or two.
