Ryan Adams Records With Glyn Johns, Mounts European Solo Tour

Ryan Adams at The Catalyst, from the HAD Archive

Oh my. This is very, very, good news. Over facebook yesterday, Ryan Adams dropped the bomb that not only has he started working on a new solo record, but he's recording with his classic collaborator Glyn Johns. The two crafted some of Adams' best solo work, including Heartbreaker, Gold, and 29. with the father of his classic collaborator, Ethan Johns. The legendary Glyn Johns has apparently decided to take over where his son left off and help Adams out in the studio.

On top of having new songs and making new recordings, Adams has apparently also decided to share them with the world. In June he will embark on a solo European tour, consisting of twelve dates, to debut the songs. Lucky you, Europe. Looks like we need to start shopping for plane tickets!

Ryan Adams recorded Heartbreaker, Gold, and 29 with Ethan Johns. To my knowledge, he's never recorded an official album with Glyn Johns before.
