Ryan Adams Sets A Release Date For Cardinology

Soon-to-be-published author Ryan Adams has set aside his copy of The Blueprint and his study of Ayn Randian fonts to share some news: The new album with the Cardinals is done, is titled Cardinology, and will be available for study on 10/28 via Lost Highway. That may or may not be the official album cover there. (Thanks either way, Matt B. Well, more if it’s legit.) Ryan’s press team’s promising it’ll be “concise,” “focused,” and “unadorned,” so I guess it’ll less Jerry Cold Roses stuff and more of the Westerberg worshipping side. He’ll celebrate by stopping into the Ed Sullivan Theatre to visit with Ryan Adams superfan Dave Letterman on 10/29. Here’s a tracklist:

01 “Fix It”
02 “Magick”
03 “Let Us Down Easy”
04 “Like Yesterday”
05 “Go Easy”
06 “Sink Ships”
07 “Born Into A Light”
08 “Cobwebs”
09 “Crossed Out Name”
10 “Natural Ghost”
11 “Evergreen”
12 “Stop”

We got a listen to a few Cardinology songs not too long ago, so study up. The first official single will be “Fix It,” out digitally on 9/23.

Ry’s book Infinity Blues is out 3/16/09, and if you preorder (starting 10/6 through Akashic), you’ll get a signed hardcover plus a “bonus poetry chapbook” by Mr. Adams titled Sad American Mythology. And by the way, Foggy’s gone (again). Now it’s just a redirect to a Cardinology mailbox? Whatever, it’s Ryan Adams.
