A recording of The Civil Wars performing Elliot Smith’s “Between the Bars” recently premiered at NPR Music. The song is the title track from the duo’s digital EP, released tomorrow on Sensibility Music/Columbia Records.
Also featured on the EP are versions of Portishead’s “Sour Times,” Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” and The Romantics’ “Talking In Your Sleep.” The EP was previously released physically last November as a limited edition 10” as part of Record Store Day’s Back to Black Friday.
The EP follows a successful year for the duo, who recently won “Best Country/Duo Performance” at the 56th annual Grammy Awards for their song “From This Valley.” The duo previously won a 2013 Grammy for “Best Song Written For Visual Media” and pair of 2012 Grammys for “Best Folk Album” and “Best Country Duo/Group Performance.”
