Update: Sadly, Direct Current has pulled the track. "Apologies, folks, but it appears that
there's been a bit o' miscommunication regarding the new Ryan Adams single 'Gimme
Something Good.' Long story short we've now been asked by Adams' label Blue Note to take
down the stream and have done so. Digital release is scheduled for July 1 so perhaps we
can have it back up next week. Stay tuned," reads a note on the site.
As we reported, singer-songwriter Ryan Adams will
release a new single, titled "Gimme Something Good," on July 1. We don't have to wait
until Tuesday to hear the track as Direct Current
has shared a stream of the new single.
Adams' first new release since 2012 is a guitar riff-propelled ditty that sounds like a
mix of Jackson Browne & Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' best material. We look
hearing the B Side of the new single, "Aching For More," and the vinyl-exclusive "I Just
Might. The 7" is on sale now.
"Gimme Something Good" is said to
be off of Adams' next record, his 14th studio album. No official release date and title is
available yet for the LP other than Amazon's mention of "due later this year"
and Direct Current mentioning a September 9th release date. Ryan produced the single along
with Mike Viola according to a a tweet
he sent out.
Ryan Adams returns to the road late next month.
