M. Ward Hold Time

The newest album from M. Ward releases Feb 17. 2009.

The fifth album from M. Ward hits stores today. Hold Time reveres a backwoods, down in the delta vibe, with the sound of blues and a beatnik’s wanderlust flowing throughout its entirety. The album features She & Him counterpart the lovely Zooey Deschanel, Tom Hagerman of DeVotchKa, Lucinda Williams, and Rachel Blumberg of The Decemberists. He also alludes to the Bible and poet, William Blake, in “Blake’s View.” The songs produce this toe tapping lightness that teeters with a gloomy overcast. Listen to the single, “Never Had Nobody Like You (featuring Zooey Deschanel).”
