After releasing one of his career best albums in 2017 with Prisoner, Ryan Adams is back with new material. Listen to 'Doylestown Girl' on Gigwise below.

Taken from forthcoming album Big Colors - out 19 April on Blue Note, Capitol Records, and Adams' own label Pax-Am Records - it's been premiered on University of Pennsylvania radio station WXPN.

A niche channel for someone of Ryan Adams' calibre, but a decent one. The song is named after a Pennsylvanian town in Buck County and students at the University are likely to chime with this massively.

Before hearing the beautiful nostalgic love song that'll likely be enjoyed by any fan of the Prisoner album, the radio host sounds honoured to introduce it and thanks Ryan Adams for the brilliant music he's been able to play from him over the years. Then adds that the singer wanted to give a shout out to Siren Records in Doylestown, an independent record store founded in 1988.

Ryan Adams has always been a prolific songwriter and is on a splurge at the moment. Forthcoming album Big Colours is one of three (!) albums the singer is going to put out this year.

Big Colors is produced by Grammy-award-winning Latin producer Beatriz Artola and its tracklist was announced on Washington Post journalist Jackie Alemany's Twitter.

CBS host Anthony Mason revealed the album art and 17-song tracklist for Wednesdays, which will be the second of three albums to be released this year. And the third album remains untitled for now.

Here's to hoping for tour dates and festival appearances in the coming weeks too. 2019 is shaping up well for fans of this songwriting genius.
