Ryan Adams Reveals Details for Cardinals III/IV Album

Ryan Adams Reveals Details for <i>Cardinals III/IV</i> Album
As promised in June, prolific alt-country personality Ryan Adams will be rolling out an unreleased double-album he recorded with his former band the Cardinals. The release is called Cardinals III/IV, and now we have the tracklisting and album art.

Cardinals III/IV features 21 songs and will be available on vinyl, CD and as a digital download. While the album doesn't have a proper release date just yet, it is said to be getting a pre-order soon. For now, we can show you the in-depth package art (see above).


 A press release describes Cardinals III/IV as "a hybrid of all the records that the band had mutually consumed as kids… from influences as wide as Kiss and the Cars," adding that it's a "concept rock opera about the '80s, ninjas, cigarettes, sex and pizza." We wouldn't expect anything less from Adams.

Some tracks from the album can be downloaded here via Adams's Pax-Am Records. The label has a new, space-aged website here.
