On Monday, Ryan Adams tweeted his intentions on releasing not one, not two, but three studio albums in 2019. At the moment, he hasn’t made an official announcement but instead has made the odd choice of leaking information about two of the albums to various political reporters. Through those leaks know that those albums are called Big Colors and Wednesday, with the former due for release first, on April 19, via Pax-Am/Blue Note/Capitol.
Today, he’s unveiled the first single off Big Colors via Philadelphia radio station WXPN. While that also may seem a unique choice rather than now-standard streaming services/blog premiere, it actually makes some sense considering the song is called “Doylestown Girl” (Doylestown, PA is about 27 miles north of Philly). A recording of the radio premiere has appeared online, listen below.
