(Gibson) Ryan Adams fans will likely detect an eclectic range of influences on the singer-songwriter's forthcoming yet-to-be-titled album which is slated for release on November 4..

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Adams revealed that AC/DC, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Bruce Springsteen and Electric Light Orchestra impacted the LP's sonic direction.

"When I run, I listen to [an iPod] Nano that I have," he said. "I put all the AC/DC records on from back to front, or I'll listen to the best of stuff from the '80s: Springsteen, or [Nick] Hornsby, and I'll listen to what is going on there. I was listening to AC/DC's Fly on the Wall, and that's when I realized what I had to do for the record." Read more here.
