'The Civil Wars' is the follow up to the three-time Grammy Award-winning duo's acclaimed debut, 'Barton Hollow', which is now certified RIAA Gold in the U.S. and Gold in the UK.
The next single to be taken from 'The Civil Wars' is the achingly beautiful 'Dust To Dust' which Joy Williams from the band describes as "an anthem for the lonely. Sometimes you come across somebody who thinks they are hiding their pain, but if we are all honest, nobody is very good at it. "You're like a mirror, reflecting me. Takes one to know one, so take it from me." When John Paul and I wrote this late one night in Birmingham, England, we decided to change the pronoun at the end of the song. We wanted to represent that we all experience loneliness in our lives."
'Dust to Dust' has an impact date of September 16th 2013 and will be released on Sensibility Music/Columbia Records.
'The Civil Wars' was recorded in Nashville between August 2012 and January 2013. Charlie Peacock was once again at the helm as producer for the album. Additionally, Rick Rubin produced the duo's performance for the track "I Had Me a Girl" in August of 2011. Peacock later completed the track by producing the instrumentation and mix.
