[Download] Ryan Adams - "I Want To Know What Love Is" (Foreigner Cover)

Ryan Adams' new album is a throwback to the eighties and while I may have only been born in 1989, I grew up listening to my Dad's record collection from that era, and you know what, I like it. Sure, it's cheesy at times, and maybe even predictable, but it just sounds good to me. Maybe I'm looking at it with rose-tinted fondness, but Ryan's new self-titled album is equally brilliant and given it was released in 2014, maybe my kids will grow up and reach for it in my collection when they're growing up and the cycle of the 80s will begin again.

With his new album's sound in mind, he's offered up a true piece of memorabilia by covering "I Want To Know What Love Is" recently for NPR's World Cafe. Originally released in '84 by Foreigner, the result presented to us is a beautiful, stripped back version approaching nearly 7 minutes that remains smooth, emotional and damn right brilliant from start to finish. Whenever you may have been born, however old you may be, enjoy the download of the track below via Stereogum.

[Watch] Laura Marling - "My Winding Wheel" (Ryan Adams Cover)

We know Laura Marling has a mutual respect for Ryan Adams as we saw them perform a wonderful track together at the legendary Abbey Road Studios back in November last year, and we've also seen some footage from this very show above at the McKittrick Hotel in New York City. However, the two overlap again as Laura played a cover of Adams' "My Winding Wheel" and you can enjoy the performance at the top. I hope the two meet up again for some more performances in the future but this ode to one from the other will do for now.

[Watch] Ryan Adams - "Holy Diver" (Dio Cover)

We know by this point that Ryan Adams is a talented man that likes to put his own twist on songs. Today, BPM points towards a rather nice sounding moment when the man covered Dio's classic hit, "Holy Diver". As Beats point out the venue has a rather strict policy about using video equipment or mobile phones to capture images etc but some gig goer managed to get a pretty decent recording of the cover. Peep it at the top.

[Watch] Ryan Adams - "Chains of Love" (Official Video)

Ryan Adams is continuing to keep his music on computer screens and into our headphones with an official video for his Ashes & Fire featuring track and new single, "Chains of Love". Since the album was released on the back end of last year we've seen Adams on just about every late night TV show and some have been lucky enough to catch him live. This video sees him performing on top of a building in the city accompanied by an all female band. Lots of soft focus for a great sounding track. Enjoy it at the top. (Via Pigeons and Planes)
