Ryan Adams - Prisoner LP
Blue Note Records
Prisoner is the follow-up to 1989, Adams’ song-for-song remake of Taylor Swift’s album of the same name. It marks Adams’ first full-length collection of new music since 2014’s Ryan Adams.
In a recent interview with the Japan Times, Adams spoke about the inspiration for the album:
"I started writing this record while I was going through a very public divorce, which is a humiliating and just a fucking horrible thing to go through no matter who you are. To be me and to go through that the way that I did was destructive on a level that I can’t explain. So a lot of extra work went into keeping my chin up and remembering what I did and what I loved about who I was."
