Ryan Adams has revealed that he'll be releasing a new single in July, before a new full-length album follows later in the year. 

Since his critically-acclaimed 2011 album Ashes And Fire and the subsequent tour, Adams has focused his time on producing for the likes of Fall Out Boy and Jenny Lee Lewis.

Now, Shop Radio Cast report that the alt-country hero will be dropping new seven-inch single 'Gimme Something Good' on 1 July, backed by B-side 'I Just Might'. 

It is reported that 'Gimme Something Good' is the lead single from Adams' hotly-anticipated 14th (FOUR-TEENTH!) studio album - which we're really, really looking forward to.

Ryan Adams next confirmed gig is at the legendary Newport Folk Festival in the US from 25 - 27 July, 2014. For more information visit Gigwise Tickets

Below - Still to come: 32 huge albums to look forward to in 2014

  • Death From Above 1979 - The Physical World: It only took them a decade, but the Canadian noise-rock duo have revealed that the follow-up to their cult favourite 2004 debut is coming on 9 September. Come get some.

  • Interpol - El Pintor: NYC's finest and most dapper gloom-rockers return with their hotly-anticipated fifth album. We've heard half of it, and it's their most direct and accomplished work in years. Hear it for yourself on 9 September.

  • The xx - TBA: Oli, Romy and Jamie xx have confirmed that they've been working on a 'completely different' sounding new album between Texas and Iceland.

  • Florence + The Machine - TBA: Ms Welch assures us that the new album is on its way. Details are scarce, but she says she has a lot of new material but that its 'not ready yet'. Hurry up, Flo.

  • Jessie Ware - TBA: With new single 'Tough Love' due to drop imminently, we can't quite tell you how excited we are to hear the sweet, soaring and soulful follow-up to the immaculate Devotion this year.

  • Royal Blood - TBA: Giving British rock a much-needed kick up the arse are rising champions Royal Blood, who told us that their blistering debut is in its final stages and coming in August.

  • Jenny Lewis - The Voyager: When it comes to summer-tinged Americana, it doesn't get much more accomplished or satisfying that Jenny Lewis. The former Rilo Kiley's third solo LP was produced by Beck, Ryan Adams and Jonathan Rice - which only heightens our anticipation for its release on 28 July.

  • Queen - Queen Forever: Brian May has promised that the legendary rockers will drop a new and 'epic' album of previously unheard material featuring the late, great, Freddie Mercury towards the end of the year.

  • Smashing Pumpkins - TBA: "Guitars, guitars, guitars" is what Billy Corgan had to say when describing their upcoming LP. Combine that with the fact that Tommy Lee guest on drums and it's said sound like an epic reminiscence of Gish and Siamese Dream and you've got us excited.

  • Say Lou Lou - TBA: The criminally-overlooked and underrated Swedish-Australian twins made it into the BBC Sound Of 2014 longlist, and if there's any justice in the world then their blend of perfect pop-noir and warm dance subtltety will get them the worldwide popularity they deserve when it drops in Autumn.

  • Muse - TBA: After tearing through Coachella, Muse said they'd be returning to the studio in Spring to pen their more 'raw' and rock-based follow-up to 2012's The 2nd Law, teasing that new material could be ready to hear by the end of the year.

  • Beck - TBA: He may have only just dropped Morning Phase, but Mr Hansen said he has another album ready to go soon - described as 'the proper follow-up to Modern Guilt'. Yes please.

  • Owl John - TBA: Scott Hutchison of Gigwise favourites Frightened Rabbit has gone solo - and first track 'Hate Music' sounds really ace. It sounds like he's gone quite post-rock, and we love it. A full album is set to follow soon.

  • FKA Twigs - LP1: There are few more anticipated debuts that the sultry and trip-hop excellence of FKA Twigs - coming to you on 12 August via Young Turks

  • Morrissey - World Peace Is None Of Your Business: Due for release in July, we can't be sure of what sound Mozza will adopt this time around. What we do know is that it features some gloriously typically Morrissey track titles such as 'World Peace is None of Your Business', 'I'm Not a Man', 'Earth Is the Loneliest Planet', 'Staircase at the University', 'The Bullfighter Dies' and our favourite, 'Kiss Me a Lot'.

  • Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL - PlectrumElectrum: He's been dropping a run of awesome new singles over the last year, and after signing a new deal with Warner Bros, they say the Purple One's long-awaited 36th album (THIRTY SIXTH!) album is 'coming soon'. From the twisted classic rock fun of 'PretzelBodyLogic' and 'FixUrLifeUp' to the cheeky r&b gem 'Breakfast Can Wait' and the shimmering pop of 'FallInLove2Nite', it's shaping up to be one hell of an album.

  • Manic Street Preachers - Futurology: Due for release on 7 July, the Welsh stadium punk heroes describe their twelfth album as 'furious, propulsive and expansive', adding "Futurology is the sound of the Manics at their very best - a record inspired by permanent revolution, modern art and Autobahns". Judging by 'Europa Geht Durch Mich', the title track, Let's Go To War and the massive single 'Walk Me To The Bridge', this could well be their finest work in years.

  • Foo Fighters - TBC: According to Grohl the album will be 'awesome' and will take the band to new heights and sounds, supposedly recorded in a way never attempted before. It's currently being recorded at various studios around the world, with producer Butch Vig recently declaring that it's 'halfway done'. Expect to hear it in Autumn, in time with a TV documentary to be screened about the making of it. Here's a photo that the band recently shared of Dave Grohl hard at work.

  • Blink 182 - TBC: It's going to be an exciting year for Blink after the band appear to have momentarily put their numerous side projects aside and get back to ruling the pop punk genre. As yet the release date is unannounced, the band have said that new material will be out by the time of this years Reading and Leeds headline slots in August.

  • Frank Ocean - TBC: Responding to an enquiry from a fan last year, Ocean said that his new album would be coming out in summer 2014. Following up the success and amazing laid back grooves of Channel Orange is definitely no mean feat, however if there is anyone who is up to the challenge, then it's Ocean.

  • The Cure - 4:14 Scream: Made up of leftovers from 2008's 4:13 Dream, anything by The Cure demands your attention.

  • The Twilight Sad - TBA: Speaking to Gigwise earlier this year, frontman James Graham told us that their fourth album was coming in winter 2014, adding: "I'm really excited about it, it's everything that I wanted to be at this point. You can always tell it's us and there are some things we can't change, even if we wanted to - like my stupid accent, but I can't really do much about that. But we've learned from every record and subconsciously made it into this one. The guitars are back, whereas people said the last album was quite synth-heavy. I think it's quite large-sounding, it's got some of our biggest songs on it whereas the last album was quite insular."

  • Adele - 25: The globe-conquering soul sensation recently tweeted a hint that her third album would be out later in 2014, so expect her third LP to dominate the charts for the coming year or two.

  • Tool - TBA: The long awaited album from Tool is supposed to come out at some point this year. The band have a long history of deliberating for years over songs, recording tracks hundreds and hundreds of times until they reach perfection. The long wait and mystery around the release makes it all the more interesting.

  • Noel Gallagher - TBA: The Oasis legend celebrated his 47th birthday at the end of last month (29 May), and celebrated by posting a picture of himself in the recording studio. It's not the neatest space we've seen, but who are we to question his methods? Hopefully it means the album is coming soon

  • BANKS - Goddess: Some call her the female equivalent of The Weeknd, we just call her awesome. Fill your life with her dark but haunting r&b when it drops on 8 September

  • La Roux - Trouble In Paradise: We'd almost forgotten about Elly Jackson because she'd been away so long, but after dropping the synth-pop perfection of 'Let Me Down Gently' we wonder how we've lived without her. Expect another reminder of her greatness when her second album arrives on 7 July.

  • Gerard Way - TBA: The former My Chemical Romance man has gone solo. Gone is the drama and the opera, replaced with some full-throttle pop-punk fire.

  • Kanye West - TBA: West has already confirmed that the follow up to Yeezus is in the works and should drop at some point this year. It's a given that it will push the boundaries, divide opinion and ultimately show whether you love him or hate him, he is an incredibly important figure in music.

  • Slipknot - TBA: The masked menaces of metal are currently locked up in the studio working on new material. Being their first album since the death of bassist Paul Gray and departure of drummer Joey Jordison, there's a hell of a lot riding on this one.

  • Friendly Fires - TBA: After releasing a new doube A-side single with The Asphodells, back in March, the new material suggests that the dance-rock kings have retained that Friendly Fires' summer-soaked sound, with somewhat of a more psychedelic departure. An announcement about their third album is expected imminently. HURRY UP.

  • Chic & Nile Rodgers - TBA: The disco king is back, and has been working on a new record for quite some time, with one track in particular that features 'almost everybody' who has ever sung with him. He's worked with a lot of awesome people. Here are just a few that could feature on said track: David Bowie, Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, Madonna, Grace Jones, Peter Gabriel, Sister Sledge, Mariah Carey, Robert Plant, Diana Ross, Jessie Ware, Sam Smith. That could be one helluva song.

  • Alt-J - This Is All Yours: The Mercury-winners will be dropping their second album on 22 September. Can it match the impact of their debut?
