Entertainment Weekly Revealed 90 Second Preview Of “Kingdom Come” By The Civil Wars

Entertainment Weekly has just revealed a 90 second preview of “Kingdom Come” By The Civil Wars which will be included in “The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond” soundtrack. Previews for other songs in “The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond” soundtrack can also be found on Amazon Germany as we had previously reported.

Here’s what The Civil Wars are saying about “Kingdom Come” to Entertainment Weekly:

“It’s our homage to a survival song,” Williams told EW. “And also to trying to keep your cool and stay rational in a ridiculous situation,” White added. “It’s a little bit of ‘It’s going to be OK, 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.”

“We wrote ‘Kingdom Come’ on the road in Jackson Hole, Wyoming,” he continues. “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.”

As for the other songs on the soundtrack (out March 20)? They’ve heard most of them, but…”I think ours are better,” White joked. “Let the headline be: The Civil Wars Are Carrying the Rest of the Artists on the Soundtrack on Their Backs.”

Head over to Entertainment Weekly to listen to the fabulous preview of “Kingdom Come” By The Civil Wars now!
