M. Ward called this afternoon to talk about the upcoming Omaha show featuring She & Him, his indie folk project with actress Zooey Deschanel, and the duo’s latest album, “Volume Two.”
That performance will go down Aug. 28 at the Anchor Inn. Get your tickets, only $20, over at www.onepercentproductions.com.
While the bulk of the interview was about She & Him, Ward mentioned his solo project and the Monsters of Folk.
“I don’t have any plans to put out a solo album now. Right now, I’m concentrating on these She & Him shows,” he said. “Then the Monsters of Folk are going to perform at Austin City Limits, so I’m gearing up for that. I love working on that project as well.
When asked about whether or not Ward and the rest of the Monsters of Folk wanted to make a new album, he said, “Absolutely.”
“We love working with each other,” Ward said. “There’s nothing on the calendar, but it’s just a matter of time until our next record.”
