Episode 200 of 797 episodes

On this edition of All Songs Considered we've got exclusive sneak previews of some of this year's most anticipated albums: M. Ward's upcoming release, Hold Time, is a gorgeously produced mix of finger-picked guitars, upright bass and shuffling rhythms, all tied together by his achy voice. Hear the song "Stars of Leo," now on All Songs Considered, and the entire M. Ward album at midnight Monday, Jan. 12. Also on the show: Bon Iver, Animal Collective, Heartless Bastards, and a classic from the Bee Gees.
