RYAN ADAMS – ” Nebraska ” Adams covered the whole of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska album

Posted: November 24, 2022 in MUSIC

Though Ryan Adams has form for covering artist’s songs live and on record, until now Taylor Swift’s “1989” is the only time he’s covered an album in full. But that’s about to change; he’s covered the whole of Bruce Springsteen’s 1982 record “Nebraska”. It’s not even the first free album Adams has put out this year – back in September he gave away his 22nd studio album “Devolver” via his website. It’s part of a particularly prolific year for the songwriter that has also seen the release of albums “FM”,” Chris” and “Romeo & Juliet”. And the latter two were double albums. 

Here’s a rough mix of the title track of “Nebraska” – I’ll be emailing you my version of the whole album as an early Xmas present for free in a day or two. What a special album that taught me so much about songwriting. It still does after all these years. Go listen to the original if you haven’t, you’ll love it forever.

I hope to see you in #Omaha Nebraska next week and where ever else you may roam. I’m so looking forward to the last shows of the year. Many surprises to come. Thanks for being on this ride with me. It means the world. I’m very Thankful for you all.

With Love,XO

It’s clearly been a huge influence on Adams’ work. Springsteen’s sixth album saw him working solo with a four-track record with astonishing results; it’s rightly regarded as one of his finest works, and indeed a classic in the canon of Americana. Now Adams has decided to release his take on it as a free gift for his mailing list(opens in new tab) subscribers.
