M.Ward has released a music video for “Slow Driving Man” from More Rain, which was released in March of this year.
Directed by Carlos Foster, the video has a sleepy feel to it, with dark, hazy images of Ward driving through a city at night. His Monsters Of Folk bandmate and fellow indie-folk singer-songwriter Conor Oberst also makes an appearance as a passenger of the slow-driving car.
“Slow Driving Man” is the fourth song from More Rain to get a visual, preceded by “Girl From Conejo Valley,”“Confession” and “I’m Listening (Child’s Theme).” More Rain is M. Ward’s nostalgia-tinged eighth studio album, and his first since 2012’s A Wasteland Companion. Four years have passed, but Ward has been busy with his copious collab projects, including being the “him” half of She & Him with Zooey Deschanel and playing guitar on Neko Case’s latest release.
M. Ward is heading out on tour starting tomorrow to support More Rain. See the list of dates below and watch the video for “Slow Driving Man” above.
