There’s something beautiful about the new The Civil Wars BTS video. It’s sad, intense, and heartbreaking to see them this way, but it’s also very human and real.
They’ve let us see them in the good times and not-so-good times. The video is like a snapshot of life. I just hope one day they can find their way back to happiness and friendship.
I am now at the ‘anger’ stage of loss with The Civil Wars.
FIRST SINGLE RELEASED TO WIDESPREAD CRITICAL PRAISE
SELF-TITLED RECORD TO BE RELEASED AUGUST 6 ON SENSIBILITY MUSIC/COLUMBIA RECORDS, NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER
A new in-the-studio video from The Civil Wars premieres today at VEVO. Created by 1504 Pictures, “The One That Got Away (Studio Cut)”provides a special behind-the-scene view into the duo’s dynamic while recording their highly anticipated sophomore self-titled album, which will be released August 6 onSensibility Music/Columbia Records.
Released June 4, the album’s first single, “The One That Got Away,” is already climbing the charts and receiving widespread critical acclaim. USA Today calls it a “…bluesy, pining single,” while Paste describes it as “haunting” and Entertainment Weekly asserts, “a crackling, morose blues-rock ballad…that swells with moments of fury.” The single is now available to stream (http://smarturl.it/totgastudiocut) and purchase (http://smarturl.it/totgaitunes) and the album is now available to pre-order (http://smarturl.it/thecivilwars).
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.
The album was recorded amidst a grueling touring schedule, exhausting workload and a growing disconnect from their families. Personal statements from band-members Joy Williams and John Paul White can be viewed at http://thecivilwars.com. (X)
