Here at Slyvinyl HQ we’ve got a bunch of Ryan Adams fanboys.
My least favorite thing that Ryan Adams ever did was try to convince the indie rock world that Taylor Swift was a good songwriter. So I was really excited to hear the first couple songs from 1989’s follow up Prisoner.
Lead single Do You Still Love Me? sort of encapsulates everything that I love about modern Ryan Adams.
Ryan is taking us back to his wheelhouse. Songs about angst, love, heartbreak, isolation and modern madness.
If you like your indie rock sad and introspective then you’ve come to the right place.
This is the Indie Music Store exclusive red vinyl version. Ryan Adams sells a lot of records to people like us, so I expect this one to go pretty quickly as well.
And yah Ryan. I do still love you, babe.
Limited edition red vinyl pressing! Prisoner is the 16th studio album from the former member of alt-country outfit Whiskeytown and the follow-up to 2015's 1989. To have this many albums under his belt, Ryan Adams has obviously been through many changes. It is reflected in the evolution of his sound - from surprising deviations into metal or punk, or those Taylor Swift covers from the aforementioned 1989. Here Adams deals with isolation, healing, and self-reflection from his 2016 divorce to Mandy Moore over 12 tracks of raw, emotive, genuine rock and roll. This indie exclusive pressing comes on translucent red vinyl and is limited to 2,500 copies.
