Watch: M. Ward ‘The First Time I Ran Away’ New Video

Written by Brayden Darke on February 2, 2012

Indie rocker M. Ward has released a first taste of his new album in the form of a video for the song The First Time I Ran Away. The video was directed by Joel Trussell, the same artist responsible for Ward’s video Chinese Translation clip.

His upcoming album A Wasteland Companion is set to be released on the 9th of April, and is the follow-up to Hold Time. The track listing (see below) consists of twelve tracks.

In anticipation of the release, M Ward said that “Between now and when I made Hold Time there has been a lot of travelling, which requires a lot of reckoning with what to leave behind and what to carry – material and otherwise – and thinking about what I want versus what I need, creatively and otherwise. I wanted to get a reflection of that on the album. It was a process of stripping away my security blanket, which is the same four walls I always record in.”
