Ryan Adams' Limited-Edition 'Prisoner: End of the World' Box Set Will Include Action Figures, 17 B-Sides

Ryan Adams is prepping a limited-edition version of his upcoming album, Prisoner, which will come with a host of special, seriously unusual extras. Pre-orders for the Prisoner: End of the World box are available now for Adams' Mystery Box email list subscribers (and here on Jan. 25 for the general public), with both in line to receive a digital copy of the album when it drops on Feb. 17.

So, what do you get for your $150? For starters you'll unpack 12 7-inch records -- one for each of the dozen songs on Prisoner backed with 17 previously unreleased B-sides -- all pressed on different colored vinyl and with their own unique cover art. But wait, there's more!

 

The set also comes with a 2-D playset featuring action figures of Adams and his band, complete with working lights and sound, amps, arcade games, cats and guitar pedal boards. Upping the ante, 12 randomly selected copies of the box will also include a one-of-a-kind solo acoustic 7-inch singles of a Prisoner track recorded at Electric Lady Studios' legendary Voice-O-Graph. According to a release announcing the set, there will only be one production run of the box, with only one per customer.

Prisoner is Adams' first album of new material since 2014’s self-titled set and the follow-up to 2015’s cover ofTaylor Swift's 1989.

Listen to Adams' latest track from Prisoner, "Doomsday."
