Since going on a short hiatus, The Civil Wars’ much anticipated second album now has a little bit more information. The band’s Vine account sent a cryptic message possibly sharing lyrics to their first single off of the new record.
The lyrics from the Vine read:
“I never meant to get us in this deep
I never meant for this to mean a thing”
Following the message is the date June 11, which is the date the Civil Wars’ brand new single, titled “The One That Got Away,” will be released. “I am very glad to say that new music is coming & I am fiercely proud of this album,” wrote singer Joy Williams in a note on the band’s Facebook page. “A lot of soul, sweat and tears went into its creation.”
John Paul White, the duo’s guitarist and fellow singer, wrote, “patience is a virtue. Yours has been appreciated. Here’s to the hope you consider it rewarded.”
We’ll be sure to wait ‘til June 11 to see or hear what’s next.
