Singer/songwriter Ryan Adams has settled on the track list for his ninth studio album, "Easy Tiger," due June 26 via Lost Highway. The 13-song set features guest vocals from Sheryl Crow on "Two" and was recorded with guitarist Neal Casal, pedal steel guitarist Jon Graboff, bassist Chris Feinstein and drummer Brad Pemberton.

"Easy Tiger" opens with the midtempo, country-tinged "Goodnight Rose," as Adams strains for Neil Young-ish high notes. Other highlights include the loose rocker "Halloweenhead," the drum-less, acoustic guitar-led "Oh My God, Whatever, Etc.," and the harmony rich lament "Two Hearts."

The new album is the follow-up to 2006's "29," which itself came on the heels of the separate 2005 releases "Cold Roses" and "Jacksonville City Nights." In advance of a planned fall tour, Adams will play a few shows this month, beginning May 15 in Glenside, Pa.

Here is the track list for "Easy Tiger":

"Goodnight Rose"
"Two"
"Everybody Knows"
"Halloweenhead"
"Oh My God, Whatever, Etc."
"Tears of Gold"
"The Sun Also Sets"
"Off Broadway"
"Pearls on a String"
"Rip Off"
"Two Hearts"
"Three Girls"
"I Taught Myself How To Grow Old"
