Singer-songwriter ZZ Ward in gearing up for the release of her debut LP, Till the Casket Drops, which hits shelves on October 16th on Hollywood Records. You can now check out the soulful, orchestral cut “Save My Life,” that features a chill-inducing vocal performance from Ward – one that stood out particularly to co-writer Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick of Fitz and the Tantrums. “Writing ‘Save My Life’ together was one of those truly magical experiences you wish would happen more often,” says Fitz. “When it came time to lay down her vocals it was all there – the voice, passion and performance, all stunning on the first take.”
“Fitz is a true artist,” Ward raves of her collaborator. “He has created such an identity for himself with Fitz and the Tantrums, a sound that stands out to the world. It was such a privilege to be able to create a song with him and see our two styles come together. We wrote ‘Save My Life’ on a stormy day in L.A. and it just came so easy. Two people that love creating music.”
