Ryan Adams to release new 'Live After Deaf' boxset
Ryan Adams has revealed that he will be releasing a new boxset named Live After Deaf in the near future.
Adams, who released his 13th studio album Ashes & Fire last year, posted an image on his official Facebook page yesterday (June 13) of what appears to be a vinyl box set, writing: "Live After Deaf. Friday. This will not be repressed."
He has not revealed any further details, but it is widely expected that the album will be a boxset of live recordings. Adams previously used to allow his audiences to openly record bootlegs of his live shows, but ended this practice for his Ashes & Fire tour with the promise that live material would be gathered in an official release.
The title Live After Deaf is a reference to the singer's struggle with hearing condition Meniere's Disease, which led him to a take a lengthy break from music in 2001. Meniere's Disease is a disorder of the inner ear that can affect hearing and balance to a varying degree. It is characterized by episodes of vertigo, low pitched tinnitus, and hearing loss.
