Ward Davis does it again.
Davis released his newest body of work today, a four-song EP titled Sunday Morning. And the EP dives into a softer side of Ward compared to his gritty outlaw country tunes.
Ward shared on Instagram a few weeks ago to promote the project:
With a dive into the gospel space, the songs are more stripped down, highlighting his masterful songwriting ability.
Before the whole EP dropped, Davis teased the work with a single, a fantastic twist on James Taylor’s “Lo and Behold.”
The lyrics of the other tunes are raw and authentic, showing a vulnerable side of Ward Davis that we often don’t get to experience. The spiritual lyrics highlight the flaws of existing and how to come back from them.
“Into The River” and “Goodbye World” are standout tracks for me off the EP. The simplicity of the stripped-down melodies supported with an acoustic and steel guitar highlights the powerful words that Ward sings.
It’s a damn good day when Ward Davis drops new music, and this EP is no expectation. Give it a listen for yourself.
