Official news from Ry Ry and the band: They will release a new album entitled Cardinology on October 28, 2008. Ryan will also release his first book, Infinity Blues, on March 16, 2009 (Akashic Books).
Read the press release for the full deets:
The Cardinals–Ryan Adams (vocals, guitar, keys), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Chris Feinstein (bass, vocals), Jon Graboff (pedal steel, vocals) and Brad Pemberton (drums)–have confirmed an October 28 release for Cardinology, the band’s latest collection of all-new studio material for the Lost Highway label. They will return to their TV-home-away-from-home, THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, the following evening.
Like its predecessor Easy Tiger, which TIME magazine hailed as “a career breakthrough,” Cardinology is a concise and focused collection of twelve unadorned gems, the final sequence of which will be:
Born Into A Light
Let Us Down Easy
Crossed Out Name
First single “Fix It” will be digitally released to radio Tuesday, September 23, while “Stop” will receive a sneak premiere in the Tuesday, September 30 episode of THE CLEANER on the A&E network (check local listings).
In other news from Planet Cardinal, Infinity Blues, Ryan Adams’ first ever collection of non-musical writing will be published March 16, 2009 by venerable independent house Akashic Books. Infinity Blues will be available for pre-order through Akashic’s website beginning Monday, October 6. Pre-orders will
include a signed hardcover copy of “Infinity Blues,” with a bonus poetry chapbook by Ryan Adams titled “Sad American Mythology.” The limited edition signed and numbered chapbooks will be available only through the Akashic Books website as part of this pre-order.
