WMagazine:Anytime I read about you, it always has some relation with older literature or old records or old songs. Are you ever sick of hearing your name associated with that word, “old”?
M. Ward:[laughs] Good question. I guess it doesn’t bother me. Maybe it should bother me more? The only thing I don’t like about it is that it sort of infers that the music that’s happening right now is of no use, which it absolutely is. That might be the only downside to having the “old” tag, that it infers that I have no patience or time or need for music that’s being made right now.
