Ryan Adams on why he called his new album 'Prisoner'
Musician Ryan Adams recently unveiled his new album, entitled 'Prisoner', and he has opened up about what the record means to him in a new interview.
He told the NME: “I think the theme of this record is that we’re all prisoners of some desires, in that the very things we love are the things that hold us hostage and keep us trapped.”
The singers-songwriter admitted that he found this album very cathartic to write and didn't withhold any emotion: “I don’t remember being aware of needing to hold back anything. I felt like I needed to tell a story – the story of how I felt or what was happening internally at least, in the truest way possible."
"It was in the most vulnerable way I could. I wanted to avoid feeling like playing guitar on a soapbox…like some f**king bulls**t about life pains. I don’t want to be that person and that’s not the point of what I’m trying to do.”
He will return to the UK in September for a full headlining tour and you can check out the schedule here:
