M. Ward Raves On with Zooey Deschanel and Buddy Holly

Video: M. Ward – “Rave On” (Featuring Zooey Deschanel)

The second single from Hold Time, “Rave On” is a breezy cover of the Buddy Holly classic (first recorded by Sonny West). Had Holly been neutered and forced at gunpoint into the studio with Phil Spector the results might sound similar to this. But as with most of M. Ward‘s stuff, it grows on you and you get more out of it the more you listen. The animated video was directed by Mike Please.
