I know Ryan! I'm excited/surprised too! Well, after many rumoured problems with possible albums submitted to Lost Highway that were turned down, Ryan will release his 9th solo album on June 5th, 2007!
Possible Track listing is as follows:
The Sun Also Sets
Tears Of Gold
I Taught Myself How To Grow Old
Oh My God, Whatever, Etc.
Pearls On A String
My comments: I have heard a few of these songs. Off Broadway is a track off his unreleased session "The Suicide Handbook", and it's great to see that being pulled from his unreleased pile. Tears Of Gold has a very laid back country feel, with alot of vocal harmonies live! Two was my favorite new song that Ryan played at Starland back in July! OMG, W/E, Ect. is a track I heard off one of his strange solo performances from San Fran in April of last year. Surprised to see that on here, but maybe it'll have some alternate lyrics, cause it wasn't Shakespeare last year!
To commemorate his album release, he will be performing at Stonehenge, yes, Stonehenge, in Salisbury over in the UK. He will be performing in front of one of the wonders of the modern world. I hope that Brad doesn't spontaneously combust! He's too good of a drummer for Ryan to find a new one!
