Ryan Adams Will Be Trevor Noah’s First Musical Guest on ‘The Daily Show’
Following the viral-like success of his 1989 covers album, Ryan Adams has been revealed as the very first musical guest on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah.
Jon Stewart, who served as the anchor for Comedy Central’s satirical news show for 16 years, retired from his position last month. Noah will take over the reigns next week, with his very first episode slated for Monday. Adams will help Noah close out his very first week as host, guesting on Thursday’s episode (Oct. 1).
Adams dropped his full-album cover of Taylor Swift’s unstoppable 1989 earlier this week, and it has since launched itself to the top of the iTunes charts. Adams and Swift spoke to Zane Lowe about the album -- that conversation can be heard right here.
Adams’ 1989 has enjoyed overwhelmingly positive reception, but Father John Misty arguably gave the best stamp of approval when he proclaimed the album a “classic” and delivered his own tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek covers of Adams’ covers in the style of The Velvet Underground & Nico. Tillman later pulled the songs after a very convoluted dream, which ended with an apparition of Lou Reed telling the singer, “Delete those tracks, don’t summon the dead, I am not your plaything. The collection of souls is an expensive pastime.”
