Little Baby

Album: More Rain (2016)


  • This was one of the first songs that Ward completed for More Rain. An important track in terms of helping the singer define what he wanted, it also took a pleasantly unexpected turn. "It started to sound like a direction for the record. The backbone of all these voices, and there's just surprises coming in throughout the record," Ward told American Songwriter. "With 'Little Baby,' k.d. lang brought some of these chords in the backing vocals - beautiful, five parts. She has an incredible gift and an incredible ear."

    "That happens all the time, and it happens with every guest that I'm able to bring in," he added. "They all do something that I would have not expected them to do. And that's what makes them great artists."
