Ryan Adams’ “Wasted Years”

CalifornicationThere’s still not a new album in Ryan’s immediate future, but at least he’s turning up on some soundtracks lately. On the heels of his “This Is 40” star turn last month, Ryan has  contributed a song to the upcoming sixth season of the Showtime series “Californication.” And in a nod to his metalhead roots in Jacksonville, it’s an odd and interesting choice — an acoustic cover of “Wasted Years,” from the British metal band Iron Maiden’s mid-’80s album Somewhere in Time, and a song he has played live for years.

You can hear Ryan’s cover here; and Iron Maiden’s 1986 original here.
