Ryan Adams’ newest 7″ features Johnny Depp

Preorders / December 15, 2014

No Shadow, the newest in the series of endless 7″s from Ryan Adams, is now up for pre-order at his Pax-Am store and Bull Moose. This one features actor Johnny Depp and he explains a bit of the story behind the recordings below:

Johnny came rumbling into PaxAm one night with this riff and an idea of what it was about- a few hour later and one take on a 2 inch 24 track tape machine later we had No Shadow… typed up on my manual typewriter and born and delivered from a simple riff we found on his i phone. Johnny is a real songwriter and one of the deepest guitar players out there. Thats us singing and playing and playing all the parts ourselves with just our pal Marshal Vore on drums.

 The B side is from the first night we met where all we did was play and didn’t say a word. This was the third thing we ever played together and there was no discussion. True rock and roll moments, as they should be, unfussy and delivered with all the heart and soul we had that night.

 Track three is a little song I wrote about being stoned in the 7-11 parking lot across from Pax which is groundhog day for me and most that fly with us.

The single will be released on January 13th.
