Exclusive Premiere: M. Ward's "Rave On" Video

By |

In Issue 1073 (fronted by Taylor Swift), Rolling Stone's Jenny Eliscu took a close look at how M. Ward's vintage sound has made him indie rock's go-to collaborator (his recent pairings include work with Lucinda Williams and Jenny Lewis, and he's also known as the male half of She & Him, his band with Zooey Deschanel). The 35-year-old songwriter still plays the $50 guitar he found in a pawnshop nearly 10 years ago and is opposed to using digital equipment when recording, but his new video for his Buddy Holly cover "Rave On" features some fancy — but still charming — animation.
