Ryan Adams – “Ashes & Fire” Video

By Tom Breihan / September 6, 2011

In the run-up to his new album Ashes & Fire, Ryan Adams has been on, uh, fire lately. First there was the lovely, scaled-back new single “Lucky Now.” Then, there was the equally (and improbably) lovely cover of Iron Maiden’s “Wasted Years.” And now here’s a video of Adams doing a simple, straightforward solo acoustic version of the album’s title track while wearing a Black Sabbath shirt and singing into an old-timey microphone. Watch it here. It is great.

Ashes & Fire is out 10/11 on Pax-Am/Capitol.
