Acoustic Guitar, Bass, Drums, Electric Guitar, Vocals... some nice Americana sounds from The Civil Wars and T Bone Burnett for the soundtrack to A Place at the Table- a movie about hunger and poverty in America. This song is called "Long Time Gone" and it's the first piece of new music from The Civil Wars since they cancelled a tour last year due to "internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition"... what would you expect from a band called "The Civil Wars"? Anyways, the music rocks and the movie focuses on a subject that deserves more attention so we're diggin' it.
