Ryan Adams Back Behind His Typewriter

BrzA0vXGWdolmlivFQ9gOvPH_400.jpgWhen an abusive fan attacked a member of Oasis earlier this week, the band’s tour was temporarily derailed. The band’s tour mate, singer and songwriter Ryan Adams, used the unexpected break to work on his new book.

“[M]ore work on the crazy ass book,” blogged Adams. “[I]t’s nice to write about unicorns and s*** though. whatever that is. maybe I’ll finish that damn novel. maybe.”

Although the blog mentions a novel, a spokesperson for Akashic Books confirmed that they plan on publishing “a collection of poetry & some short prose pieces” from Adams next spring–entitled Infinity Blues.

I’ve been listening to Adams’ gloomy songs for years, from “Come Pick Me Up” to “Firecracker,” I’ll follow him wherever he wants to go–pen, paper, novel, guitar, whatever.
