May 27 – Jim Ward shares new single and statement for new single “Foreign Currency

I think that when everything stopped in 2020 and I couldn’t make any plans and there was no going anywhere I finally stopped and looked back and started to really unpack some things emotionally and mentally that I had put in a shelf way in the back. A lot of that became blueprints for this records lyrics and themes – Foreign Currency dives right into the realization that the result of living without being totally honest with yourself first is going to hurt the ones you love the most. Sometimes it takes a lockdown, a guitar and some real honest alone time to get to the bottom of things.

May 6 – Jim Ward discusses new track “I Got A Secret”

On May 6, Jim Ward released new single “I Got A Secret” from the album. It features Shawna Potter (War On Women)

I Got A Secret was one of the very first riffs that shaped the direction of this record- raw, angry, unapologetic guitar- as soon as the music was finished and I began writing vocals I knew I wanted a call and response with someone that could push me and immediately called Shawna Potter from War On Women. I was over the moon she not just agreed to sing with me but absolutely brought all her brilliance and power with her to the song.

April 8 – Jim Ward shares lyric video and statement for lead single “PAPER FISH”

On April 8, Ward released new track Paper Fish.

Paper Fish was the last song I wrote for Daggers. It seemed like it was the final piece of a puzzle I had been working on. It’s rare for me to sit down, write and then sing something almost completely in one take but that is what happened on this song. It was as if the process of making this record allowed me to finally break through and say exactly what I was trying to say. Life is a journey and for me, that journey is 100% about being a better person. I think about and work towards this every day. When I die, I want to die the best man I’ve ever been.
