I will admit that back in November when The Civil Wars announced they were cancelling tour dates and pretty much breaking up, I was devastated! Have you heard their music?? It is simply amazing. From the sound, to the lyrics, to the chemistry that Joy and John Paul have on stage with each other. Put it all together and you have something truly incredible!
So, imagine my surprise and heartbreak when I got their e-mail last fall saying it was pretty much over. Yet, they did offer a glimmer of hope! The last sentence of the note read: "Our sincere hope is to have new music for you in 2013."
Well, that hope has been satisfied and as John Paul put it in his new note: "Patience is a virtue. Yours has been appreciated. Here's to the hope you consider it rewarded." And as Joy put it in her new note: "I'm grateful for your patient support...I'm very glad to say that new music is coming..."
The Civil Wars are releasing a new self-titled album in August (pre-orders are now!) and I am so excited for its release. The duo have been so nice as to release a single off the anticipated album in order to tie us over until the fall. Have a listen down below!
