Ryan Adams

To commemorate today’s special status, indie rock hero Ryan Adams is sharing the sweetness of “Baby, I Love You”. The upright single plays in sharp contrast from his most recent work, taking on a tone of 60’s soul singers blended with his iconic charm – and just in time for Valentine’s. Play this in the car on the way to your date with maybe all-too-smooth repeat while together.

Since calling it off with Mandy Moore and releasing his heartbreaking album Prisoner, Ryan has been recouping – picking fights with music peers via Twitter – but also making time for writing the upbeat “getting over it” tunes everyone appreciates on days like these. Listen below.
