Ryan Adams has announced the next instalment in his Pax-Am singles series; this one features tracks "No Shadow", "Stoned Alone" and "It's In My Head", and it'll be released 13 January via Pax-Am.
Johnny Depp provides guitar on two of the cuts - "No Shadow" and "It's In My Head" - and Adams has written about the collaboration:
"Johnny came rumbling into PaxAm one night with this riff and an idea of what it was about- a few hour later and one take on a 2 inch 24 track tape machine later we had No Shadow… typed up on my manual typewriter and born and delivered from a simple riff we found on his i phone. Johnny is a real songwriter and one of the deepest guitar players out there. Thats us singing and playing and playing all the parts ourselves with just our pal Marshal Vore on drums.
The B side is from the first night we met where all we did was play and didn’t say a word. This was the third thing we ever played together and there was no discussion. True rock and roll moments, as they should be, unfussy and delivered with all the heart and soul we had that night.
Track three is a little song I wrote about being stoned in the 7-11 parking lot across from Pax which is groundhog day for me and most that fly with us."
