New America (Featuring Ryan Adams, Ben Kweller and Adam Schlesinger)

We don’t expect you to get excited about a new America release. We wouldn’t be either, but as we mentioned a few months back, the folk rockers are gearing up to release a double disc produced by Adam Schlesinger and James Iha. Maybe still not enough to get you going, we know. How about hearing the forthcoming Here & Now’s “Ride On,” where they’re joined by DJ Reggie, Ben Kweller, and Schlesinger? Got us curious.

Stream: QT | Real | WMA

Watch the EPK for cameos by the indie kids who were involved in the project, including Matthew Caws and Ira Elliot, whose “Always Love” gets the America cover treatment.

Here & Now is out 1/16 on the always-classy Burgundy Records.
