When a title begins with "The First ", it automatically takes you to a flashback of your first personal experience. It could be your first kiss, first day, or the single from M.Ward's forthcoming album "The First Time I Ran Away". The anticipated collection, A Wasteland Companion is out on April 10th via Merge Records. To help convey a childish nostalgia, the music video of "The First Time I Ran Away" is a creative animation of an oriental girl running away with her llama friend. The video was directed by Joel Trusell and the song was recorded by Tom Schick at Magic Shop in NYC. Watch it below and let those memories flutter by.
