Ryan Adams stopped by WXPN’s World Cafe this afternoon to play some songs from his self-titled release, which came out today. While there, he also debuted “The Door” live, a song from his treasure trove of unreleased material. The song appears on unreleased album Blackhole, which is made up of older material recorded prior to 2007’s Easy Tiger. He told the host that he needs to put out Blackhole soon: “It’s the last record I did on drugs, and this album is a kind of finale of that time.” He also mentioned that he may put out two different versions of the record, one that he’s “always dreamt of it to be like” and another that’s a “pocket of really raw, crazy stuff.” Listen to it here — skip ahead to 39:50. If you haven’t already, check out our recent interview with Adams.
