SONG OF THE DAY: July 22nd

Written by Steve Pierce on . Posted in Music

M. Ward (feat. Zooey Deschanel), “Never Had Nobody Like You”

Thursday evening marks the third installment of Salt Lake’s Twilight Concert Series at the Gallivan Center. While the first two shows boasted the likes of Bon Iver, Jenny Lewis and the Black Keys, tomorrow night promises to continue the hit parade with the musical stylings of M. Ward. Coming off the release of his well-received seventh solo album and a successful collaboration with actress Zooey Deschanel (as She & Him), the indie folk giant will bring virtuosic guitar skills and great tunes both new and old to downtown.

In honor of M. Ward’s visit to our little corner of the world, we here at Rhombus have selected the second track off his latest solo album, Hold Time, as today’s Song of the Day. Featuring Deschanel on backing vocals, “Never Had Nobody Like You” starts with a pulsing, “We Are The Champions”-style drumbeat before Ward breaks in with his laid-back vocals and persistent rhythm guitar. The song perfectly melds blues and folk into an amalgamation of rocking loveliness. You should probably take a listen and venture up to the Gallivan Center tomorrow night. It is free, after all.
