Ryan Adams covers "I Want To Know What Love Is," debuts "The Door" on NPR

Singer-songwriter and former Triangle rock star Ryan Adams recently released a solid new self-titled album and while promoting it he covered the Foreigner power ballad "I Want To Know What Love Is" for NPR's World Cafe program. Check out the performance below.

During the set Adams also premiered an unreleased song titled "The Door." Stream that song via NPR.

Adams has yet to return to the Triangle singe his 2005 show with The Cardinals at Meymandi Hall in Raleigh. Here's still hoping that he can find his way back to his former home for another show soon.
