M. Ward – too young to die (ft. First Aid Kit)
Songwriter M. Ward has dropped mesmerizing single too young to die feat. First Aid Kit from his new album Supernatural Thing. “First Aid Kit are sisters from Stockholm, and when they open their mouths, something amazing happens,” Ward said of working with them. “It was a great thrill to go to Stockholm and record a few songs there. The sound from blood-related harmony singers is impossible to get any other way – The Everly Brothers, The Delmores, The Louvins, The Carters, The Söderbergs – all have the same kind of feeling in their vocals.” This beautiful track is a masterful bit of songcraft: sparsely produced, laced with striking melodies, and sharply written on the lyrical front.
