Ryan Adams appeared on BBC 6 Music with Lauren Laverne for an interview and performance yesterday. During an interview portion of the segment the singer-songwriter revealed he’s been at work on a book about his former band Whiskeytown.
Adams played two songs from his forthcoming studio album Prisoner, offering takes on “To Be Without You” and “Do You Still Love Me?” between chats with Laverne. The host asked Adams about projects he’s working on beyond writing songs and he revealed he was currently writing two books.
One book is a science-fiction novel Adams has been writing for a while that he shared few details about. A second book will chronicle his early-career alt-country group Whiskeytown.
“I think it’s going to be really funny,” Adams said, “but it’s going to be about my sort of first years, with my first sort of known band, Whiskeytown, and all of the crazy funny things that happened. And [it’s] going to hopefully have a thing where some of the other members and I talk about different specific things – I mean it was mostly just really funny and fun.”
Alongside violinist Caitlin Cary and a regularly shifting lineup, Adams and Whiskeytown released three albums between 1995 and 2001. Laverne asked about a possible Whiskeytown reunion but Adams said nothing was planned. Listen to yesterday’s interview and live performance posted by darkrendar below:
