ZZ first premiered the bluesy pop song which featured Joey Purp on The Fader and it has since garnered praise for ZZ’s signature soulful vocals.
The song marks ZZ’s first new material in 2017 and introduces her anxiously awaited second full-length album, which is set to arrive this summer.
This spellbinding jam churns out a soulful chant and six-string Southern swagger over a sample of The Charmels’ “As Long As I’ve Got You,” before a scorching cameo from spitter Joey Purp of Chicago’s Savemoney [Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa] crew. A return to ZZ’s roots, its confessional storytelling documents a decaying relationship with a raw delivery evocative of her earliest blues heroes such as Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, and Big Mama Thornton.
With a soul-shaking voice and incendiary guitar and harmonica chops, ZZ Ward has consistently delivered powerful neo-blues steeped in hip-hop swagger since the release of her breakout mixtape, Eleven Roses. 2012’s full-length debut, Til The Casket Drops, boasted raucous bluesy anthems like the title track and “Put The Gun Down,” which racked up over 7.4 million Spotify streams and counting, claimed a spot in the Top 10 of AAA radio for 10 weeks, and landed high-profile syncs in the box office smash We’re The Millers, among others. The album also featured standout collaborations with Kendrick Lamar and Freddie Gibbs as ZZ earned acclaim from Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Elle, Interview Magazine, and more in between appearing on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Conan, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, The View, and many others. Along the way, she toured with the likes of Eric Clapton, Gary Clark, Jr., and Fitz & The Tantrums in addition to hitting the stage of Coachella, Bonnaroo, Firefly, Made In America, and more.
