Here’s a sneak preview of track two from The Civil Wars, “I Had Me A Girl,” in this new behind-the-scenes video. The band’s new self-titled album hits the streets on Aug. 6, 2013.
Don’t expect a tour in support of the new release any time soon. The band is currently on hiatus due to, “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition.”
This album chronicles loss and regret and anger and victory and sweetness and loyalty and I hope that people get the chance to listen to it.
What I’ve noticed is people may be curious about it, but once they listen to it, they are hooked. It’s so honest and it’s so rich and, not to toot my own horn, I’m just really proud of what we created together. And we created it together — we just happened to be in a bit of a civil war ourselves.
