Vintage Americana/Zooey Deschanel enthusiast M. Ward is back at it again with his first solo record since 2009's Hold Time. His new album A Wasteland Companion, which is due out 4/10 via Merge, is set to feature familiar backing artists like Mike Mogus and John Parish, to name a couple. Today, you can stream the first single off of M. Ward's eighth full length, titled "Primitive Girl."

M. Ward's new track has that familiar reverb-soaked vocals that has become so distinctly his, and it's helped along by a catchy piano hook and Susan Sanchez's backing vocals. "Primitive Girl" doesn't seem like a sign that A Wasteland Companion will be much of a departure from his earlier work, but the new album will still be a great to this spring's growing list of new releases. Make sure to check out M. Ward's spring U.S. tour dates below the stream.
