M. Ward has announced the release of his tenth studio album. 'Migration Stories' arrives April 3, 2020 via Anti-. The album was recorded in Quebec, where he linked up with the Arcade Fire’s Tim Kingsbury, Richard Reed Parry, producer/mixer Craig Silvey, and Teddy Impakt. Migration Stories is inspired by stories of human migration. Ward described the results of the Quebec sessions as “11 largely instrumental ballads, a sci-fi fast forward to a more silent night many generations from here to a maybe-era where movement is free again.” The lead single is called 'Migration Of Souls.'
