M. Ward – Unreal City

M. Ward has shared Unreal City, the second single from his latest album, Migration Stories, to be released on 3rd April via Anti Records.

Inspired by stories of human migration, these songs have their origins in pictures from newspaper and television reports, stories told by friends and tales from Ward’s own family history. With languid vocals over an uptempo rhythm, the new single searches for peace in a post-apocalyptic swirl of synthesizers.

Give it a listen.

 

Happy New Year! Our top 100 tunes of 2019 will be coming shortly, but in the meantime the Lost Brothers have unveiled the second single and video from their forthcoming album After The Fire After The Rain (out on the 7th February).

Appropriately enough the new song is the title track and was recorded in Brooklyn New York – long standing MM faves, M.Ward and Howe Gelb feature on electric guitars.
