Ryan Adams Shares New 7-Inch and His Summer Jams for the Year

Ryan Adams is celebrating the dog days of summer with the release of the latest entry in his PaxAm singles series — a new 7″ titled Willow Lane. Despite the somewhat delicate name, the 3-track release is a rollicking, collection of his crisp, throwback-rock stylings. The final tune, “Red Hot Blues,” is a goofier blues-inspired riff. Stream all three via Spotify, and check out the lengthy letter Adams released with the 7-inch (where he names Nas, Don Henley, Superchunk, and Dr. Dog as his “summer jams this year”), below. The physical 7″, which can be pre-ordered here, drops on August 21. (h/t Stereogum)
