M. Ward shares grooving folk single “Confession” — listen

on January 19, 2016, 4:40pm

M. Ward will return with his first solo album in four years, More Rain, on March 4th via Merge. The follow-up to 2012’s A Wasteland Companion began its life as a doo-wop record before mutating into “true gotta-stay-indoors, rainy-season record” comprised of 12 nobly crafted folk rock tunes. As the latest taste, Ward has shared the LP’s latest single, “Confession”.

The song is built on a Midwestern stroll of bass that sets the pace for Ward’s own grooving guitar strums. As always, his voice is warm and drowsy, his words of hope and reverence pushing up through the dusty tones. “Somebody need a body to save the day,” he sings while harmonies lighten his load and the beat rises heavenward. “Somebody need a love to go all the way/ There’s a place you can go where I know they’ll never find ya.”

Take a listen below.

More Rain was previously previewed with the lead single “Girl From Conejo Valley”. The album also features a number of guest appearances from Peter Buck of R.E.M., Neko Case, k.d. lang, The Secret Sisters, and Joey Spampinato of NRBQ. Find the tracklist below.
