ZZ Ward Announces New Single “365” + Fall Tour Dates Announced (@ZZWard)

ZZ365EPAfter a successful run with Put The Gun Down, off her full-length albumTil The Casket Drops, ZZ Ward recently debuted her new single, 365 Days with a rousing performance onJimmy Kimmel Live! The song (written by Ward) showcases her soulful voice, keyboard prowess and echoes a sentiment of empowerment as a bad relationship fizzles, making the song not only relatable but a fan favorite. The video,which shows a poised Ward as the relationship spirals (literally) to its end,can be seen below.

Its been a whirlwind 365 days for ZZ as shes gone from an underground mixtape to critically acclaimed album release, sold out tours, appearances onConan,Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Last Call with Carson Dalyand given buzzworthy performances atSXSW, Firefly, WakarusaandSasquatch,sharing the stage with the likes of The Lumineers, Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, and more. Not to mention, ZZ designed her own line of fedoras for Broner hats and saw her music featured inNashville, Pretty Little Liars, The VoiceandWere The Millers.

Later this month ZZ will continue her summer coast-to-coast run performing atLive On The Green, theHarley Davidson Festival,BumbershootandMusic on the Half Shellin Roseburg, OR where she was raised — a true homecoming moment for ZZ who once sold her CDs in the parking lot at the local mall. The summer run will be followed by the kick-off of her fall headline tour,TheDown and Dirty Shine Tour 2013(dates below.)

An eclectic and innovative performer, ZZ’s mix of backporch blues and gritty hip-hop beats has been resonating with both fans and critics alike.
