M. Ward has definitely made his name known within in the music world. Songwriter, producer and performer, Ward has become an artist that we can all revel in from his earliest releases to today with his newly announced single “Migration Of Souls.” The first song from his upcoming tenth album Migration Stories, and his first for new label Anti, his sound is strong here representing a new birth for his sound.
The song opens with a nice folk tone before additional instrumentation plays underneath the guitars. Ward’s vocals come in like a soft lullaby, offering a more focused sound. The doubled over vocals that meet with his backing melody offer a stunning sound that’s hard to dislike. This is Ward bringing a more direct tone, emblazoned with horns and a more heavenly note structure, the song has our ears peaked for what comes next.
“Migration Of Souls” can be purchased digitally via Anti Records. It can also be streamed above or on all streaming services. Migration Stories is available for preorder directly from Anti Records ahead of its April 03 release. M. Ward will be on tour beginning April 17 at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA until May 22 at Regent Theater in Los Angeles, CA. His complete tour routing can be located here.
