Recorded between 2012 and 2013 with producers Rick Rubin and Charlie Peacock, before John Paul White and Joy Williams stopped speaking to each other and announced that they were going on hiatus, Between the Bars first appeared in 2013 on vinyl as an exclusive Record Store Day release. The 10" single, which featured evocative, in-studio covers of tracks by Portishead ("Sour Times"), Michael Jackson ("Billie Jean"), the Romantics ("Talking in Your Sleep"), and Elliott Smith ("Between the Bars"), was made available as a digital EP in early 2014.
Good news and bad.
Bad news first. No-this group is not back together as of now. These are songs that were already recorded before the break up. Folks-most artists record about twice as many songs as you hear on their album. These are just left overs they never put on a album. Notice the copywrite dates are from 2012 and 2013.
Good news-this is a great 4 song EP. If you enjoy this group-grab it! It may be the last we hear from them.
We all can keep our fingers crossed these two will figure things out-but the break up seemed to be about some serious issues way beyond artistic direction. Time will tell.
I expected nothing but excellence from these two and they have indeed delivered!! Always a pleasure to hear their music!!
I'm loving the covers of Talking in Your Sleep and Billie Jean, but what caught my eye was Between the Bars, which my favorite artist has covered. These two do quite well.
The Civil Wars have yet to disappoint me.
