Get Bluesy On Record Store Day

Record Store Day comes but once a year, and this time around, soulful songstress ZZ Ward is offering up a vinyl 7″ featuring a cover of Son House‘s “Grinnin’ In Your Face” and an original song, “Everybody Wants To Be Famous,” on the flip side. The latter was originally recorded during the sessions for Ward’s debut LP ‘Til The Casket Drops, but was held back from release until now.

Idolator is premiering the song, four days before its April 20th release (only in participating Record Store Day establishments). Watch the video clip above, which features ZZ’s hand nimbly plunking a needle on her tambourine-shaking, blues-infused track. Give it a spin, and try not to slap your knee in time to the rhythm Ward delivers.

    Awesome song, there’s not one ZZ track I don’t like. Anyone got any news about some new material off her this year? Like a mixtape or second album? Can’t get enough!
