M. Ward - Post WarI’ve been looking forward to the August 22nd release of M. Ward’s new album Post-War. You can pre-order the album directly at Merge Records and it will arrive on or around the release date.

I was surprised (not really) to find an announcement on 4AD’s site that M. Ward has signed to their label. Although, his upcoming 5th album is definitely being released by Merge Records, I’m unsure if Post-War will co-released on the 4AD or if M. Ward is leaving Merge Records.

Regardless, we can expect great things from M. Ward. 4AD continues the announcement by praising his catalog of work:

M Ward is one of the finest songwriters (and guitarists) in America, and albums like The Transfiguration Of Vincent and Transistor Radio – released by Merge in the USA and Matador in the UK – already have the status of timeless classics.

There is no mention of 4AD for the albums listing at the Tower Records site or Amazon. Although, I’m hoping for a collaboration between 4AD and Merge — like those we saw between 4AD and Teenbeat with Unrest or 4AD and Simple Machines with Liquorice — in the mid-nineties.
