ZZ Ward premiered her new song, “The Dark” on Good Morning America this morning via Facetime while the official music video for same premiered on YouTube. The song, written by ZZ, is a pivotal song for the singer/songwriter who wrote the song last year when she felt isolated and alone – a sentiment that resonates with many these days. Notes ZZ of the song:
“When I wrote ‘The Dark’ I felt alone, betrayed and uncertain of my future. I knew I had to pick myself up and keep going but I was scared. Within a matter of days, our lives have been turned upside down by the global pandemic. ‘The Dark’ is about facing the unknown, leaving fear behind and living in hope.”
“The Dark” is one of three new songs ZZ has released since December (“Break Her Heart” and “Sex & Stardust,) and marks the first new music since her 2017 album, The Storm, which debuted #1 on Billboard’s blues chart and spun off the hit song, “Domino” ft. Fitz of Fitz and The Tantrums.
ZZ was in the middle of her U.S. headline tour, “The Stardust Tour,” with sold out dates in Los Angeles, San Diego and Denver, when due to swelling concerns regarding the coronavirus outbreak, the decision was made to postpone the rest of the dates. Rescheduled dates will be announced shortly.
