RYAN ADAMS has been described as one of the most elegant singer-songwriters of his generation.

The American musician, record producer and poet, is set to perform an intimate headline show in Bournemouth support of his highly-anticipated album, Prisoner.

As his first album release in two years, Prisoner is said to be Ryan’s best work of the decade.

It is his first album of all new original material since 2014 and is set for release on February 17 next year.

He said: “People will ask if this record is about my personal life. The answer is yes - but the answer has always been yes. I’ve always written from experience.”

Ryan Adams will be performing at Bournemouth’s O2 Academy on Tuesday, September 19.
