Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Civil Wars performed their new song “Kingdom Come,” from the soundtrack to the smash-hit movie, The Hunger Games.
Joy Williams told Entertainment Weekly that “It’s our homage to a survival song.” Her partner in music, John Paul Williams, added, “And also to trying to keep your cool and stay rational in a ridiculous situation. It’s a little bit of ‘It’s goign to be okay, it’s going to be all right, we’re going to make it through this,’ even when the situation around you is more dire than you’d care to admit. I think it’s how we all cope.”
He also told the magazine that they wrote the single “on the road in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We were out there for a show, in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I think the landscape helped us capture the mood. We were unfettered, out in the middle of God’s country.”
So what do you all think of this track?
