#634 M. Ward – Slow Driving Man

‘Slow Driving Man’ is taken from M. Ward’s eighth solo album More Rain, released earlier this year. Ward said of this new video, “Here’s a miniature movie directed by Carlos Forster for ‘Slow Driving Man’. It’s about a driver in San Francisco who is driving through a world that’s suddenly moving too fast. One night, he happens to pick up a customer who he recognises from a previous life. Based on true events.” You might also recognise the customer – given that its Conor Oberst. M. Ward will be back in the UK in the late summer for a couple of festivals, and has announced he will top and tail those appearances with gigs in Manchester and London.
