Ryan Adams’ last album came with 2011’s Ashes & Fire. Since then, he’s been producing for the likes of Fall Out Boy and Jenny Lewis while continuing to enjoy the endless perks of being Mr. Mandy Moore. Now, it appears as if Adams is finally set to release his next solo record later this year. Though, to whet fans’ appetites, he’ll issue a brand new 7-inch on July 1st through Blue Note Records.
Word of the 7-inch comes from a posting on Shop Radio Cast (via Exclaim). According to several retail listings, the A-side will feature a track entitled “Gimme Something Good”, while the B-side features “I Just Might”. Reportedly, “Gimme Something Good” will serve as the lead single of Adams’ 14th studio album, while “I Just Might” is exclusive to the 7-inch.
Stay tuned for more on the 7-inch and the full-length LP . No doubt Adams will play some new material during his various festival appearances this summer, including Newport Folk and XPoNential. Consult his full tour schedule here.
