Ryan Adams Ashes And Fire on LP
Celebrated Singer-Songwriter Strips Down and Returns to Acoustic Roots on Most Acclaimed Album He's Made in a Decade
Ryan Adams' 2011 album, Ashes & Fire, served as the prolific singer/songwriter's first solo effort to be released via a new arrangement with his own label, PAX-AM, and EMI’s Capitol Records. The album was recorded at Sunset Sound Factory in Hollywood and produced by Glyn Johns, renowned for his work with The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Clash, The Who and The Rolling Stones, and whose son Ethan produced previous Adams classics Heartbreaker, Gold and 29.
Adams' first release following the disbandment of The Cardinals and overcoming deep rooted addictions finds the singular artist revisiting his rich acoustic roots with breathtaking results. From the slow-burning opening stunner “Dirty Rain” through the infectious shuffle of the title track, to the irresistible harmonies of “Lucky Now” and the closing lament of “I Love You But I Don’t Know What To Say,” Ashes & Fire is arguably the most cohesive and beautiful album of Adams’ distinguished career.
The acclaimed 11-song set also boasts guest appearances from the likes of Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench, wife Mandy Moore on backing vocals on a pair of tracks, as well as Norah Jones who contributes piano and backing vocals on several numbers, including the lilting, acoustic overtures of "Come Home," the sumptuous ballad "Save Me" and the heartfelt "Kindness."
