Ryan Adams' new album, Prisoner, is his first since his divorce from actress and singer Mandy Moore. 

The split led Adams to New York where he wrote almost 80 songs for the project.

Adams talked with Tom Power about the creative process behind his new album and how his personal relationships impacted the music.
