Ryan Adams To Release First-Ever iTunes Session

Ryan Adams is set to release his first-ever iTunes Session on April 24 with a preorder available today on the iTunes Store. The set captures 8 stunning solo performances by Adams that were recorded at the historic Capitol Studios in Hollywood. The track listing features a mix of Adams classics from his 2000 solo debut Heartbreaker, the Whiskeytown era “Houses On The Hill,” and songs from his acclaimed new album Ashes & Fire, including the #1 AAA radio hit “Lucky Now.”

The session also includes a cover of Bob Mould’s “Black Sheets of Rain,” which Adams performed at a Mould tribute concert in Los Angeles last year prompting the Los Angeles Times to declare “Ryan Adams stole the show with the quietest set of the night. His devastating solo acoustic reads of Mould’s ‘Heartbreak a Stranger’ and ‘Black Sheets of Rain’ stripped the arrangements bare and revealed the first-rate melodicist behind them.”

Adams drew rave reviews and capacity crowds at every stop along his 2011 solo tour. The New York Times lauded his Carnegie Hall performance as a “gorgeously hushed communion” in which “a lone chord can arrive like a thunderclap.”

The track listing for Adams’ iTunes Session is as follows:

1. Dirty Rain
2. Oh My Sweet Carolina
3. Lucky Now
4. Houses on The Hill
5. Black Sheets of Rain
6. Chains of Love
7. Ashes and Fire
8. My Winding Wheel
