Ryan Adams has revealed details of his debut novel, “Infinity Blues”.

Writing on his blog, the singer-songwriter explained that the “long long sad book” will be released by publishers Akashic Books – however it is not yet known whether the book is strictly fiction or prose.

Adams explained: “Wow…I guess this dream is coming true. My grandparents, who taught me to write and type and dream, I am so proud of all your hard work today, even if this is a long, long sad book but some funny too, just like those black and white movies in the heat of the eastern seaboard – rolling through the windows of our home.

“I am so humbled and so proud to be an Akashic Books author. Man, this is just crazy, like when I saw the first test pressing of the first seven inch record I was on.”

The prolific musician’s last album, ‘Easy Tiger’, was released in June 2007.

It’s unknown when, or if, the book will be released in the UK.

Adams is currently supporting Oasis on the North American leg of their world tour, which kicked off last night (August 26) in Seattle.
