Ryan Adams Announces Mysterious 'Live After Deaf' Box Set

Ryan Adams Announces Mysterious 'Live After Deaf' Box Set

Fans of Ryan Adams have waited years for an alleged, much-delayed box set gathering his numerous sets of unreleased material -- now, it appears they'll be gifted with a different collection.

The rocker posted an image on his Facebook page on Tuesday of what appears to be a vinyl box set, noting, "Live After Deaf. Friday. This will not be repressed."

Adams, who had previously supported audience bootleg recordings of his performances, ended the practice for his "Ashes & Fire" tour with the promise that live material would be gathered in an official release. Should the new box set document his recent touring, it will find the singer-songwriter in intimate acoustic mode, mixing current material with past classics ranging as far back as his days in Whiskeytown and solo debut "Heartbreaker."

The title is a wink at his struggles with Meniere's disease, an ailment that led him to take a break from music before returning with 2011's "Ashes & Fire" and its accompanying tour.

"Ashes & Fire" was released by Adams' own Pax Am Records in conjunction with Capital -- the new release's home has yet to be announced.
