RYAN ADAMS – ” Doomsday “

Ryan Adams  begins his latest song “Doomsday” with a pledge: “I could wait 1,000 years my love, I’d wait for you,” he sings. “I could stand in just one place my love and never move.”

“I was listening to AC/DC’s ‘Fly on the Wall,’ and that’s when I realized what I had to do for the record,” singer-songwriter said in new interview

The track on Ryan Adams’ next album, “Prisoner”, blends these earnest, lovelorn sentiments with elements from both folk and Eighties heartland rock. The track kicks off with sturdy strumming and a descending melodic line played on a harmonica; a lead guitar quickly doubles the harmonica riff. The beat is where the Eighties come in: the clipped, echoey drums evoke the popular production style from that decade.  Adams suggested that his latest tracks were inspired by groups like AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen and ELO.

Prisoner arrives via Pax Am/Blue Note, and Blue Note boss Don Was helped produce the record. “I didn’t know if I knew what I was doing,” said Adams. “So when you”re in a situation like that, you gotta get Gandalf – you gotta call Don Was!” Was served a similar wizard role for the Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt, Ringo Starr and Bob Dylan, among others. He won a producer of the year Grammy in 1994.

Prisoner hits shelves on February 17th.
