Ryan Adams is back with another great album, his 16th, which is called Prisoner. I met up with this prolific artist at Electric Lady Studios to talk about his latest songs. We also discussed the influence of metal bands like AC/DC as well as his views on political songs and power ballads.

During our conversation, Adams explained his creative process in a funny but insightful way. He was also very humble and made light of his ability to write songs—yet impressively made up a few little ditties on the spot. He also played a few acoustic versions of the new material from Prisoner.
