“Well, I shuffled through the city on the 4th of July”

Saturday, 4 July, 2015

New York, New York was included on an acclaimed Ryan Adams album that was scheduled for release on 11 September 2001. The material on Gold was written long before the 9/11 terror attacks and the themes, hard loving and heavy drinking, were the stuff of young lives in a city full of adventure. Songs of innocence, in a sense.

New York, New York acquired poignant fame because Adams shot the accompanying video on 7 September on the banks of the East River with the Twin Towers featuring prominently in the background. Sic transit gloria mundi.
