New Music From M. Ward

Last week we told you about NPR streaming the new M. Ward album Hold Time, but that doesn’t do much for your ipod lovers.  Today we’re offering up an MP3 of a song from the new album called “Never Had Nobody Like You” which features backing vocals from the other half of She & Him, Zooey Deschanel.  I wonder why the first single would be one of the few tracks featuring the future Mrs. Gibbard?  We’ll let you decide that one.
