Ryan Adams continues the roll-out for his forthcoming album Prisoner with a video for the record’s opening track and first single “Do You Still Love Me.” Opening with Adams laying down on the stage at Red Rocks, the video shows Adams at work (and goofing off) both in the studio and on the road. The song’s ‘80s vibe is matched by some appropriately grainy footage that looks like it could have come straight off a VHS that you rented at Blockbuster. Famed producer and Adams’ studio buddy Don Was also makes a few cameos.
Prisoner is out Feb. 17, and Adams recently announced an elaborate special edition box-set available to pre-order now. He’s also released two other songs from the record, the heartbreaking “To Be Without You” and the Springsteen-esque “Doomsday.” He’s also at work producing albums for Liz Phair and Jenny Lewis.
This weekend, Ryan Adams debuted a cover of Radiohead’s “Karma Police” during a BBC interview with Jo Wiley, which you can listen to here around the 2:33:00 mark. Before the performance, he notes that the song popped into his head in part due to Trump’s election, calling the president “a pretty awful person.”
If all of this weren’t enough, he’s also announced an album release show at the Apollo Theater in New York on Feb. 16, and was added to the lineup for Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta.
