album stream, new Zooey D MP3 from M Ward’s new album

DOWNLOAD: M Ward & Zooey Deschanel – Never Had Nobody Like You (MP3)

Hold Time

The songs of singer-guitarist M. Ward seem to drift in on the crackling radio waves of a distant time. Warm and intimate, his largely acoustic and usually spare arrangements are a tribute to what Ward sees as the greatest era for American music: the 1950s and early ’60s, when singers like Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison infused country-rooted pop with honesty and romance. Ward’s latest album, Hold Time, continues this tradition, with a gorgeously produced mix of finger-picked guitars, upright bass and shuffling rhythms, all tied together by his achy voice.

Hold Time won’t be released until Feb. 17, but listeners can hear the entire album here on NPR Music as an exclusive preview.

M’s partner in She & Him, Zooey Deschanel, contributes to the album. You can hear her in the first officially released free MP3 from the album above.

Like the Sadies, M Ward also contributes to the new Neko Case album. You can get an MP3 from that too.

Zooey Deschanel is now engaged to Ben Gibbard.
