ZZ Ward Record Store Day Release // Tour Dates

ZZ Ward Record Store Day

Check out ZZ Ward’s contribution to Record Store Day.

ZZ Ward is planning a run of summer dates and festival run, including performances at Firefly and Sasquatch. The alternative blues-soul singer has also announced an exclusive 7″ vinyl for Record Store Day. That’s the cover art above that features an image taken of Ward when she was just eleven-years-old. On the A-side is a live cut from ZZ’s sold-out show at the Troubadour and a cover of Mississippi blues singer and guitarist Son House’s song “Grinnin’ in Your Face.” On the B-side is a song that ZZ says, “makes you want to drive around listening to it on a summer night with the top down,” called “Everybody Wants To Be Famous,” which is an unreleased cut from her album sessions and another collaboration with Neff-U. Listen to both songs and check out tour dates below.
