New Song and Video from M. Ward

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 9:58 AM

Here's "The First Time I Ran Away," a new song (and video) from M. Ward from his forthcoming album A Wasteland Companion, which comes out April 10. The charming animated clip was directed by Joel Trussell, who was also responsible for the lovely video for "Chinese Translation," and indeed this song hearkens back to Post-War era M. Ward, offering flickering, watery production over a simple melody. This isn't the kind of tune that immediately hooks itself into your psyche, but its impressionistic melody feels like an idea that is quite comfortable rolling around inside your head for a while.
