Ryan Adam's eagerly anticipated follow up to his 2011 "comeback" album Ashes and Fire will be released October 15 via Capitol, according to a posted release schedule from the label. The new album -- as yet untitled -- is again produced by legendary studio man Glyn Johns (Who, Clash, Stones) who also handled Adam's Ashes and Fire. Producer/guitarist Ethan Johns, who worked with Adams on his Heartbreaker and Gold,albums is a member of Adams' post-Cardinals studio and stage band joining Tom Petty sideman Benmont Tench on keyboards, Don Was on bass, Cindy Cashdollar on steel guitar, Jeremy Stacey on drums.
The new album is said to continue Ashes and Fire's lush and mellow folk/rock tone with Billboard hinting that the new songs have "more orchestral flourishes." New tracks are said to include "When I Meet You In My Mind" and "In the Shadows", two new songs Adams and band premiered at a London charity concert this past March.
