Watch Ryan Adams Debut New Songs in L.A.

Alt.-country hero Ryan Adams recently released an EP of outtakes from 2008’s Cardinology, and he will be hitting the road in June. However, we’re anxiously awaiting his next full-length record.

Adams, perhaps aware of our anticipation, made a surprise appearance last night, opening for long-time collaborator Emmylou Harris at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles. The singer/songwriter performed three new songs, including a full-length version of “Dirty Rain,” a song we’ve heard clips of in the past. Adams also performed “Blue Hotel” and “Everybody Knows,” as well as his Heartbreaker duet with Harris, “Oh, My Sweet Carolina.”

Check out videos from the performance below:
