The Storm

Album: The Storm (2017)
  • The title track to ZZ Ward's second album, "The Storm" finds her coming to terms with a breakup that still stings. "I found a lot of inspiration for this album through past relationships," she said. "A lot of broken hearts and things that didn't work out so well for me. Things that I didn't want to face and I hadn't faced. So on this album I cleaned out my closet and faced a lot of demons. I wanted to call it The Storm because I found out who I was in facing that storm and how I weathered it."
