ZZ Ward: Love 3X
The first time I heard ZZ Ward's debut album 'Til The Casket Drops in 2012 I was like.. dang this chick is rad. Her soulful voice is somehow timeless, familiar, and futuristic at the same time. Plus, she dresses in furry coats and sassy hats a '70s pimp would die for. Fast forward to 2015 and ZZ has a new album on the horizon called This Means War. The record, produced by S1 and ZZ, is set for a September 18th release. In the meantime the first single, Love 3X premiered today. Love 3X is a seriously infectious song and I hope it's indicative of the entire album's groove. The track highlights her incredible voice and penchant for clever, honest lyrics. Plus it's a really cool and quite natural evolution from her first album. ZZ's ability to blend genres and incorporate different sounds and styles is pretty special. Have a listen and add Love 3X to your summertime playlist stat.
