Yesterday, we posted the first clips to all of the songs on The Hunger Games Companion Album, Songs of District 12 and beyond, including The Civil Wars track Kingdom Come. Now EW has an additional 90 second clip of the song, (which you can listen to here) a new interview with the duo describing the meanings behind the song and how it came together.
“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.”
