In February, Ryan Adams denied several allegations of emotional abuse and one account of sexual misconduct with an underage fan.

Women such as Phoebe Bridgers, Mandy Moore, and Megan Butterworth all came forward in the first New York Times report, which resulted in Karen Elson and Liz Phair revealing their experiences with the musician.

Adams' ex-guitarist Tod Wisenbaker supported the women that came forward too, but Adams still denied the allegations in his public apology, in which he wrote that the New York Times report was "upsettingly inaccurate".

Now Adams has returned to social media after five months. On Saturday (20 July), Adams wrote, "I have a lot to say. I am going to. Soon. Because the truth matters. I know who I am. What I am. It's time people know. Past time. All the beauty in a life cannot be reduced to rubble for lies. This madness. My work was a map for the lost. Not a billboard. So soon."

He also shared a clip of "I’m Sorry and I Love You" on Instagram, which was due to feature on his Big Colors album that got cancelled amid the allegations.

Over the weekend Ryan Adams has been sharing other clips of songs from the studio.
