Singer/songwriter Ryan Adams, fresh from last week’s release of his third full-length, “llornkcoR” (Lost Highway), has set a handful of December North American tour dates, to follow his current spate of European gigs.
Adams — who plays Stockholm Friday (Nov. 14) and has six more European and U.K. dates through Nov. 26 — will play New York’s Webster Hall on Dec. 4 and hit seven more North American engagements through a Dec. 14 gig at Minneapolis’ First Avenue venue.
As previously reported, Adams’ EP “Love Is Hell, Part 1” was also released on Lost Highway the same day as “llornkcoR.” A second “Love Is Hell” installment is due Dec. 9. In addition, Lost Highway is prepping European singles that will feature alternative rock covers and different bonus cuts for the same song. It’s unclear at this point whether the singles will be released in North America.
“llornkcoR” features guest turns by Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, ex-Hole/Smashing Pumpkins bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur and Adams’ current girlfriend, actress Parker Posey. It was largely created from songs written and arranged by Adams and friend/drummer Johnny T. He’s also worked with Patti Smith bassist Tony Shanahan over the past year.
