LA based and Oregon bred bluesy singer/songwriter ZZ Ward today dropped her new album, Til The Casket Drops, which features a mouthwatering stable of collaborators. Production from Ryan Tedder, Pete Rock, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Fitz (Fitz and the and Tantrums), amongst others, make this a diverse and highly palatable project. And that voice coming out of that little lady - what?!
Blend in blues with a little rap, why not? Some of the feature guests include Kendrick Lamar and Freddie Gibbs who handle all that quite splendidly.
