Ryan Adams & The Cardinals: Double Album III/IV Out 12/14
(Jambase.com) Ryan Adams & The Cardinals have confirmed the December 14 release of the double length opus III/IV on Adams’ own Pax Am label.
III/IV compiles a wealth of material from a planned two-week session at New York City’s Electric Lady that ended up running some six months and yielding over 60 tracks. Some of these eventually found a home on 2007’s classic Easy Tiger, while the vast majority either languished in the vaults, turned up on the internet or were aired once or twice in a live setting.
The December 14 release of III/IV marks the first time that this double-album concept rock opera about the ’80s, ninjas, cigarettes, sex, and pizza will be officially released in its entirety, as originally conceived and featuring the definitive versions of these nearly lost classic tunes.
III/IV will be available in extremely limited red and blue vinyl (including download code), limited CD, and infinite digital versions. The complete track listing is as follows:
Breakdown Into The Resolve
Stop Playing With My Heart
Lovely And Blue
Kisses Start Wars
The Crystal Skull
Sewers at the Bottom of the Wishing Well
My Favorite Song
Death And Rats
Kill The Lights
