Ones To Watch alumni ZZ Ward returns with a brand new track entitled “The Deep” featuring Chicago MC, Joey Purp.
The song is built atop a shimmering piano sample from The Charmels’ “As Long As I’ve Got You.” As we hear the tale of a decaying relationship, Ward explains, “[The track] is about feeling trapped in a relationship that I knew was no good for me. I met someone that made me lose control of myself.”
With a bluesy sound, a soulful voice and fiery drum beats, ZZ Ward continues to deliver neo-blues, hip-hop inspired tracks. “The Deep” marks the singer’s first new material in 2017 and the first piece of her anxiously awaited second full-length album, which is set to arrive this summer.
