David Ward has announced that his sophomore record, Violet, Gold + Rose, will arrive on October 12. Ward has spent the last two years between Vancouver, London and Berlin, building on the success of his debut record Transitioning. Today, he is sharing the first single, “Jesus Hollywood,” from his upcoming follow-up.
“This is where it all started,” says Ward in a release. “This was the first song I wrote for the album, and was the template for the theme of worship explored throughout.”
