After taking a step-back from the scene and seeking help for his Ménière's disease, a chronic degenerative disorder, Ryan Adams has reemerged as a formidable force with which to be reckoned.
He’s already dropped a handful of 7”s, gone on tour, made a number of TV appearances, released a self-titled LP which came out Sept. 9th via PAX-Am, and he produced Jenny Lewis’ new album, The Voyager.
Soon to be dropped is yet another 7” entitled Do You Laugh When You Lie? It is available for pre-order through PAX-Am and will ship to arrive “on or around December 9th”
Perhaps most impressively however, is his collaboration with Theodore Shapiro in composing the original film score for Danny Collins, an upcoming comedy starring Al Pacino. Shapiro and Adams previously co-wrote the original song “Stay Alive” which was performed by Jose Gonzalez for last year’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
Danny Collins, originally titled Imagine, features songs by John Lennon and is set to be released in Spring 2015 by Bleecker Street. For updates on the dramedy, visit the official movie website.
