You should listen to M. Ward

That was the first single from a singer-songwriter M. Ward's brilliant 2006 release on Merge Records titled Post-War. Actually that's the new version of "To Go Home" that is featured on the artist's upcoming single of the same name that is being released on February 20th.

From Merge:

The first single from his recent masterpiece, Post-War, is an instant pop classic written by the inimitable Daniel Johnston. Features three non-album tracks, including the epic Jimmie Dale Gilmore penned "Headed For A Fall", and featuring special guests Nico Case, Nels Cline, Howe Gelb, Mike Mogis, and Jim James. Preorders will be shipped to arrive on or around the February 20 release date.

Of course you can always pick up the disc out at a live M. Ward performance, and he's got a bunch of gigs booked with Norah Jones that you can view at
