M. Ward details how doo-wop inspired his new album More Rain
M. Ward is familiar with rain — so familiar that he decided to give it a starring role on his ninth album, aptly titled More Rain.
“I normally start the day with The New York Times front page,” Ward told EW in December. “Terrible things. So the idea of ‘more rain’ also sounds like another way of saying more bad news, how are you going to deal with it? All the songs create problems but also have solutions. So it’s a balance.”
