ZZ Ward – The Storm (2017)

The Storm is the second studio album from American singer-songwriter ZZ Ward, released on Hollywood Records on June 30, 2017. The album reached number 1 on the Billboard Blues Albums chart. Ward has said The Storm is influenced by the music of blues artists including Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson and Big Mama Thornton. Prior to the album’s release, on March 2, 2017, Ward released the single “The Deep”, featuring Chicago MC Joey Purp. The track is built around a sample of “As Long As I’ve Got You” by The Charmels, which is also sampled in “C.R.E.A.M.” by Wu-Tang Clan. The track “Ride” featuring Gary Clark, Jr. was originally featured in the 2017 Pixar film Cars 3. Ward performed the song on Dancing with the Stars on April 17, 2017. The music video for the single “Cannonball” was released in July 2017; it features blues singer Fantastic Negrito, with Ward playing harmonica on the song.
