M. Ward Announces New Album ‘Supernatural Thing’, Shares Video for New Single

    M. Ward has announced a new LP called Supernatural Thing, which will be out on June 23. It features guest appearances from First Aid Kit, Shovels & Rope, Scott McMicken, Neko Case, and Jim James. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the album’s title track, alongside with a video directed by Joe Trussel. Check it out and find Supernatural Thing‘s details below.

    “Well, all my songs depend on dream imagery to some extent, and this was an actual dream I had about Elvis, when he came to me and said that,” Ward said of ‘Supernatural Thing’. “I don’t know if it’s pandemic-related or not.”

    “The title comes from an early thought as a kid that radio travelled the same airwaves as messages from supernatural things — and music, especially remembered music, is somehow tied up in this exchange,” Ward explained. “The sending and receiving of messages from memory and dreams seem to move along this same often broken-up wavelength. I see this new record as an extension, 18 years later, of my ‘Transistor Radio’ record, but this new record is better because it’s more concise and has more voices and more moods — the way my favorite radio was and still is.”
