M. Ward Reveals “Unreal City” Video + New Track “Torch” Out Now

M. Ward has unveiled the video for his current single “Unreal City.” Directed by Beatrice Pegard and filmed in Paris, France, the video comes ahead of the April 3rd release of highly anticipated new album Migration Stories (Anti Records). Pegard adds, “The video is about finding joy and wonder in the most random moments and places, paying homage to Jean-Luc Godard and the New Wave.”

Another track from the album, “Torch,” is out now.

For Migration Stories, his tenth studio album, Ward journeyed to Quebec, Canada to work with Arcade Fire’s Tim Kingsbury, Richard Reed Parry, producer/mixer Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys,  Florence and the Machine) and Teddy Impakt. Together they recorded a collection of 11 songs inspired by stories of human migration. Languid, hazy and often dream-like in narrative, these songs have their origins in pictures from newspaper and television reports, stories told by friends and tales from Ward’s own family history. At Arcade Fire’s Montreal studios the assembled talents recorded what he describes as “11 largely instrumental ballads – a sci-fi fast forward to a more silent night many generations from here to a maybe-era where movement is free again.”

M. Ward released the album’s sublime opener “Migration Of Souls” at the tail end of 2019.
