Adams is set to release "Ashes & Fire," his eighth solo effort, Oct. 11 via his own Capitol Records' imprint, PAX-AM Records. The 11-track set, which features Norah Jones on backing vocals, was recorded at the Sunset Sound Factory in Hollywood. The project also marks the first time the performer has worked with producer Glyn Johns (Bob Dylan, The Beatles), whose son Ethan Johns produced three previous Adams releases: "Heartbreaker," "Gold" and "29."

The forthcoming collection follows last year's "Orion," a self-described "fully-realized sci-fi metal concept album," according to his website.
