Ryan Adams will release his new album, Prisoner, on February 17th and just shared the song “Do You Still Love Me?” In the year leading up to this announcement he’s let us in on his musical influences in the writing and production of this record – bands and artists like Bruce Springsteen, ELO, The Smiths and AC/DC. As far as emotional inspiration… that at least partly came from his six year marriage to Mandy Moore coming to an end. It’s easy to imagine that being on his mind in writing the album’s lead single.
Prisoner will be the followup to 1989, Adams’ track-for-track cover of Taylor Swift’s monster smash-hit of an album, and his first collection of original songs since his 2014 self-titled. Listen to “Do You Still Love Me?” below.
