That Jesse Malin/Johnny T supergroup aside, I really have no idea what Ryan Adams has been up to the past few months. Not only has his [ir]regular column at the Awl gone on indefinite hiatus, but his vinyl/digital label, Pax Am, has gone dark as well (sorta). Who knows and whatevs, right? It’s fun to be kept guessing for once (I guess). I mean, where’s Prince ever since his Vikings fight song fell short of its intended goal?
But there’s one place we know Adams to be, and that’s in front of a laptop somewhere, falsetto fully intact. Evidence: D.R. Adams celebrated the Awl’s recent redesign with his follow-up to their launch theme song, “The Awl, The Song (Hair Metal Version).”
If you recall that Garageband one-off, then perhaps you know what’s coming. Otherwise, may the force be with you… Stream “Revenge of the Awl” from the forthcoming album Born on the AOL here.
