Ryan Adams Preps Second CD Of 2005

As previously reported, the 14-track set is highlighted by the Norah Jones duet "Dear John." It follows the May release of the double album "Cold Roses," which debuted at No. 26 on The Billboard 200.
"It's very, very honky-tonk," Adams told Billboard.com of "September" in late April at the Jammy Awards in New York. He also said a third album, "29," was due for release Nov. 2, but a Lost Highway spokesperson says that project is now tentatively due in December.
Often the whipping boy of critics, Adams recently came under fire after he and the Cardinals canceled a host of tour dates at the last minute. The artist wrote on his official Web site that the band was wiped out by a "bad bug" while touring in Japan and that his "voice was fried." He said he is also suffering from "infected cysts next to my ear canal, causing hearing, balance and throat problems."
And while speculation abounded that the Cardinals may have broken up, Adams said the unit of guitarists J.P. Bowersock and Jon Graboff, drummer Brad Pemberton and bassist Catherine Popper remains together. "Anybody that says otherwise can go f*ck themselves," he proclaimed.
In the meantime, look for the Adams song "Come Pick Me Up" on the "Elizabethtown" soundtrack, due Sept. 13 via RCA, and another new tune, "Words," which appears in the movie.
The artist has also signed on to perform in late October at the inaugural Vegoose festival in Las Vegas.
