Ryan Adams Gives Heartbreaker the Deluxe Treatment
Way back in 2000, alt-country sensation and Whiskeytown frontman Ryan Adams dropped his solo debut album, Heartbreaker. The album was, as Rolling Stone reports, an instant classic.
Recorded in two weeks in Nashville, Heartbreaker is brutal, beautiful, elegant and served as a launch pad for what has turned into a career full of musical twists and turns from hard rock to jam band excursions, to a full album interpretation of Taylor Swift’s 1989.
Now, Adams has recreated the Heartbreaker experience for die-hard fans, with a deluxe reissue of the album (on vinyl and cd) containing the original remastered album as well as demos and unreleased outtakes from the album sessions, a DVD of a previously unreleased solo acoustic show from New York’s Mercury Lounge, rare photos, and more.
