A Wasteland Companion

M. Ward



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is the title track from American singer-songwriter and guitarist M. Ward's seventh album. A Wasteland Companion was recorded in eight studios in the United States and the United Kingdom and released on April 10, 2012.
The song and album title alludes to T.S. Elliot's 1922 modernist poem, The Waste Land. Ward explained to UK newspaper The Sun: "I think Eliot would agree that a wasteland can be anywhere, anytime. A companion is anything that gets you through it."

The Pet Shop Boys' breakthrough hit "West End Girls" was also influenced by The Waste Land, according to their singer Neil Tennant.
