Listen to Ryan Adams’ new song, “When Pigs Fly”



In between his recent sessions with Fall Out Boy, deadmau5, and new band Pornography, not to mention his anti-Sean Hannity Twitter spat, Ryan Adams has managed to return to his folk-rock roots. The singer-songwriter recently contributed vocals to Frog Trouble, a new CD and book featuring 12 original country songs by Grammy-nominated songwriter/author/illustrator Sandra Boynton.

Adams, who hasn’t released a proper album since 2011’s Ashes & Fire, sings on the serene folk-rock track, “When Pigs Fly”. Listen/download it here.

Boynton also recruited Ben Folds, Mark Lanegan, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Kacey Musgraves and Josh Turner for Frog Trouble. It promises “some mighty fine down-home American music, with a whole lot of gumption and heart.” Below, watch a behind-the-scenes video for the CD-book set.
