Ahead of his forthcoming album Prisoner, singer-songwriter Ryan Adams has released the music video for the album’s lead single “Do You Still Love Me?,” building further anticipation for album numero 16 (!).
In the video, Adams seems to be channeling his inner ‘80s rock star, blending grainy footage of him performing on stage with sharper shots of Adams wandering beside the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. Adams shows off his humorous side in the video, using a piece of paper with a face drawn on it to “lip sync” the words of his song.
The video’s old-school performance set up is a perfect fit for “Do You Still Love Me?,” which is more classic arena rock than the alt-country Adams is famous for. Though “Doomsday,” another track off Prisoner, certainly has more of a country vibe, Adams has proved before that he’s willing to experiment with genre, like when he covered the entirety of Taylor Swift’s 1989 in 2015.
Adams recently announced via Twitter that he’ll be holding a Prisoner album release show in New York on February 16, the day before it drops, and even performed acoustic versions of every song on the album in an independent London record store last week.
Adams also made headlines earlier this week when he performed a husky cover of Radiohead’s “Karma Police” on BBC Radio 2, a song that he told Rolling Stone was “fitting, because there’s a pretty awful person who just got elected in the United States.”
Ryan Adams, you’ve got our attention—and we’re excited.
