Although the abrupt cancellation of several tour dates fueled rumors of a breakup, The Civil Wars are back with a self-titled follow-up to their Grammy-winning album, Barton Hollow. The album is set for a late summer release on Sensibility Music/Columbia Records. Most recently, the group contributed to the soundtrack for A Place at the Table with T Bone Burnett.
The duo released the following statements through its website:
Patience is a virtue. Yours has been appreciated. Here’s to the hope you consider it rewarded.
John Paul White
If you are reading this, I want to thank you for taking the time. I’m grateful for your patient support. I am very glad to say that new music is coming and I am fiercely proud of this album. A lot of soul, sweat and tears went into its creation. I hope you find the heart in each song, that it might connect with yours. We are, each one of us, all journeying, learning and growing along this ever-evolving path.
Hope this note finds you well wherever you are…
