So this is a few days late, but Ryan Adams recently appeared on WNYC to talk about (and perform an absolutely killer version of) his tune, “New York, New York”. As WNYC says:
In the wake of 9/11, certain music that was recorded well before the attacks suddenly took on new meaning. Alt-country singer-songwriter Ryan Adams joins us to explain how “New York, New York,” his country-pop rave-up about heartbreak in the East Village, was transformed by tragedy and triumph. Plus: Adams performs a stunning arrangement of the song at our piano.
Listen to Ryan’s thoughts on how “New York, New York” was changed by the events of 9/11… and watch the song video – which was shot on location just 4 days before the towers fell – below that.
