‘M Ward’s sixth studio album, brings back the chugging guitars, raspy croon, and impressive cameos (Like Grandaddy’s Jason Lyttle and Lucinda Williams), as it embraces fresh flavors. ‘To Save Me’ has ward singing along to a Chuck Berry-Style piano rollick, while ‘Hold Time’ features big washes of strings. And attention Deschanel fans: She pops in on ‘Never Had Nobody Like You.’ The starlet is only there for backing vocals, however, making the track more He & Her than She & Him.’
The new album is being released on February 17th but you can visit NPR.org *Here* to preview the entire new album and below is the official ‘Hold Time’ music video. Also for those who may not be familiar with his older songs you can go *Here* to download one of my favorites ‘Poor Boy, Minor Key’. I love his music but still haven't seen a live performance, thank you dearest Heinz et Edith for first introducing me to him.
