Jim Ward Releases Surprisingly Aggressive Song From His New Album
Last month, Jim Ward surprised everyone by announcing that he has new music coming out. It wasn't new Sparta or At the Drive-In, but his new solo album coming out June 11th called "Daggers" & we got to hear the very first single called "Paper Fish". A month later, Jim released another new song to check out.
The new song is called "I Got a Secret" & Jim's not alone on the track. He is joined along side musician/activist Shawna Potter from the band War On Women. The new single is definitely a different sound compared to "Paper Fish". This one is much more raw, aggressive & angry, which is how Jim Ward wanted the sound to be. Jim explains that "the song was written in the summer of 2020, trying to emote the frustrations fueled by a pandemic, our government leadership & senseless killings...as messed up a time as any I've seen in my life".
Listening to "I Got A Secret", there is definitely plenty of power behind the guitar, the bass, the drums, & most certainly the vocals. Honestly this new song really does remind me that old Sparta, At the Drive-In sound. In addition to releasing the song everywhere online, there's also a new music video for "I Got A Secret" that was directed by Rachel Richards that was just released on Thursday.
Jim Ward's new album "Daggers" drops everywhere June 11th & you can hear Jim Ward on Q Connected, Sunday nights, 10pm to midnight. If you're a local artist from El Paso (or perform within 200 miles OF El Paso), you can submit your music HERE or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
