As far as artists go, M. Ward has always been prolific. On the heels of his latest album Migration Stories, the singer songwriter has announced a new album set for release in December. The songs of what will be Think Of Spring will be the songs of Billie Holiday reimagined by Ward. You get a taste of what’s in store with lead single “For Heaven’s Sake.”
Beginning with vocals at the front, they soon get met with a gentle guitar. Ward has definitely placed his own spin on the song while channeling the smooth timbre of Holiday. In an almost jazz refrain, the song has its own pace as the vocals do most of the work. With the instrumentation staying lower in the mix, there’s a lot to uncover with each listen here.
“For Heaven’s Sake” can be heard above or wherever you stream music. Think Of Spring can be preordered from Anti Records ahead of its December 11 release date.
