Ryan Adams – “Chains Of Love” Video

As another new Ryan Adams performance video surfaced today — “Chains Of Love” — we finally learned where the wellspring originated. Adams recorded the videos at his new L.A. Studio, where his new LP Ashes & Fire was recorded, a space that holds an astonishing array of analog recording gear that includes equipment previously used by Elvis, the Beatles, and Metallica, among others. Previously in this series of live acoustic sessions, Adams put out “Ashes & Fire,” “Dirty Rain” and “Let It Ride,” so you can get an idea of his headspace at the moment. For people down on Adams’s last decade of output, there’s a lot to be encouraged by here.

Ashes & Fire is out 10/11 on Pax-Am/Capitol. The Guardian recently sat down with Adams to talk about his outlook on life, music and the new record.
